Kemble rekindles back into winemaking with latest drops

After a brief hiatus, celebrated wine maker John Kemble has returned to his first love by launching ‘Big Bunch’ – a vibrant range of Hawkes Bay varietals.

The collection includes a 2014 Sauvignon Blanc, 2014 Syrah, 2014 Pinot Gris, 2013 Chardonnay, 2013 Merlot and 2014 Rose. All of the wines are made using top-quality grapes from a range of Hawkes Bay vineyards and feature Dick Frizzell designed label art.

With more than 30 years of winemaking under his belt, Kemble learnt his trade in Sonoma, California before he arrived in New Zealand and founded Kemblefield winery in 1992.

Kemble says it’s been wonderful reconnecting with friends in the winemaking industry after taking a few years off.

“Winemaking will always be my first passion and love; it’s great to be back in the game and I only hope people enjoy the wines as much as I have enjoyed developing them,” said John Kemble.

The wines, launched into the marketplace earlier this year, have been well received. Both the Chardonnay and Merlot have garnered Five Star reviews while Big Bunch 2014 Sauvignon Blanc scooped a Gold medal at the 2015 Royal Easter Show Wine Awards.

“I couldn’t be happier the range has already received recognition by the wine industry – it’s a real buzz and very important to me that the quality of the wine is nothing but exceptional. The name ‘Big Bunch’ derives from my passion to make outgoing wines, full of character, colour and with a big bunch of flavour,” said Kemble.

The Big Bunch wine series is available at wine stores and restaurants nationwide and online at advintage.co.nz and blackmarket.co.nz
