Runner Duck Varietals spread wings
We have now had more great vintage years than this region has ever known where in the past one great vintage out of 5 was the rule. But now we are back to more average years of not such great weather for 2017 and 2018 harvests.
Vintage 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 were great years for Quantities and Quality of grapes produced and follows closely the great years for Matakana of 2010 and 2013. So watch out for great wines from these years. Also, Runner Duck’s excellent grape juice, as well as olive oil from its estate, are great hits.
Also, in March 2017, we have released our first methode traditionelle which has been a great success and is now a stable addition to our range of wines being offered.
In 2018 we are adding on one more varietal, namely Albarino, to our stable from a 1.5 ha plot that we acquired recently thereby now adding to our existing offer of a Syrah, Bordeaux blend, Sangiovese, Pinot Gris, Rose, Methode, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc that we make.
