Easthope Family Winegrowers

"On a small property on a bluff overlooking the Ngararuro River, Rod Easthope and his wife Emma have established an intriguing vineyard planted to Cabernet Franc and Gamay. While the former Craggy Range winemaker waits for those vines to mature enough to yield fruit, he's been sourcing grapes from a few select Hawke's Bay vineyards and crafting the wines with as little intervention as possible. All are made without added yeasts; the Gamay (now in its third vintage) is made without any added sulfur, while the Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay remain unsulfured until bottling. These are raw yet elegant expressions of their grape variety and place." Joe Czerwinski, Wine Advocate
