2019 - A truly great year!
Rippon vineyard situated on the banks of New Zealand's Lake Wanaka is fully organic and biodynamic, Rippon’s wines are made from six grape varieties with as little intervention as possible. Nick’s extensive Burgundian experience (including Domaine de la Romanée-Conti, Domaine Albert Mann and JJ Confuron) ensures wines of elegance and a clear sense of place.
The grapes’ personality is always celebrated, even in the wilder ‘Young Vine’ releases. The flagship set of ‘Mature Vine’ Pinot Noirs each hail from a particular plot of the estate’s oldest vines and are named after family members.
The 'Rippon' Rippon Pinot Noir, as vigneron Nick Mills describes it, is the voice of his vineyard.
