This Pinot Noir has delicious bright red berry and savoury aromas on the bouquet followed by a lovely soft palate of raspberry and redcurrant flavours with a hint of thyme. This is a wonderful expression of Central Otago Pinot Noir, a luscious and fruit focused wine with great flavour and soft tannin.

The 2018 season started with an exceptionally warm spring and was followed by record heat and sunshine hours over Summer. This was the earliest harvest date for the winemakers, rewarded with excellent ripeness and quality of fruit.

The grapes for this wine was grown in the Bendigo (43%), Pisa (29%), and Gibbston (28%) sub-regions of Central Otago.

The fruit for this wine was 100% destemmed and spent 10 months in older French oak.

Food Pairing: Game, pork or lamb dishes.

A truly delicious Central Otago Pinot noir. More of a French style wine. I love it. Very good value for money.

Sarah-Jane - 22/03/2020

One of the best tasting Central Otago Pinots (IMHO) and for a reasonable price, everything else that taste as this is a lot more expensive.

Ivan - 12/03/2020

Great Pinot for the price

Shane - 29/02/2020

Absolutely outstanding wine. If I had paid $50 for this I would have been happy. Will be stocking up on this for future enjoyment.

A superb TOP end Central Otago Pinot. Excellent value for money at below retail cost

David - 27/02/2020

This is an extraordinary wine at this price and in my opinion blows away the other second label pinots

John - 20/02/2020

This is an excellent value heavier bodied Central Otago Pinot noir. We drink a lot of Pinot and this is our number one go to. (Sure we love ones that cost over $40 but who can afford that?).

A class above the cheaper pinots but worth the extra dollars
