Ant Moore Estate Pinot Gris 2019
Anthony “Ant” Moore is a grape grower, a wine maker, and an entrepreneur through and through. He reminds us a bit of Charlie Barra in his ability to see an opportunity and then build a company to capture it. An Australian outsider in New Zealand, Ant has built not only his own winery but saw a need to add a custom crush facility to help other small growers, making him a central figure among independent winemakers in Marlborough.
Ant oversees everything on his properties from initial site selection to farming to harvesting to work in the cellar. He is rather unique in that so many estates in the region are run by large companies while he and his family maintain control of their venture.
