"Wonderfully ripe and complex with dark cherry, Black Doris plum, vanilla, dried herb and roasted nut characters, it's concentrated and plush in the mouth offering terrific fruit intensity and beautifully flowing mouthfeel.

Shaky Bridge Wines is located in the stunningly beautiful Alexandra Basin of Central Otago, New Zealand. Our source vineyards are situated below the Southern 45th Parallel in the southern most winegrowing region on the globe. Our location is ideally suited to the creation of the aromatic varieties of white wines alongside our primary variety ; Pinot Noir. Sourcing fruit from 3 distinct blocks, varying in age from 20+ years, Shaky Bridge Wines owns one of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Central Otago. The various locations, soil types and clones used within each block provides our winemaker, Dave Grant, with a virtual painters pallet of flavors to create multi-dimensional wines of exceptional quality, depth and satisfaction.

We destemmed and lightly crushed high quality Pinot Noir grapes from 3 different source blocks into stainless steel tanks for a cold soak period of several days. Primary fermentation took place at 30 C + temperatures, and were ‘pumped over’ or hand plunged several times a day to achieve maximum color and flavor extraction. Malolactic took place in a mixture of old and newer French Oak barrels, with a maturation period of 12 months in barrel. We cold stabilized and lightly filtered the wine before bottling.

Shaky Bridge Pioneer Series wines are crafted to deliver a high quality wine that deliver on quality but is exceptional value. We don’t believe in compromising on quality at any pricing tier.
