About the range:
We wanted to create a range of wine that showcases the best wine regions in the country, but also captures the pioneering spirit of New Zealand wine — the search for something new and interesting.
So, we decided that our wine range should evolve with the seasons, allowing you to discover something different each time you visit.
About the wine:
The quintessence of Central Otago Pinot Noir – powerful and seductive. This wine is a blend from three unique sub-regions. The hot, North-facing slopes of Bendigo bring warmth, ripe fruits and structure. Bannockburn contributes dark fruits, richness and density to the mid--palate. Alexandra brings aromatic red fruits and, lift and bright acidity. From hand-reared vines, the semi-continental climate and free-draining silt and gravel soils produce vivid and concentrated Pinot Noir.
This is a wine with broad shoulders yet soft hands that have laid out a fruit feast. You will be greeted with black cherry, red plum, vanilla bean and wild thyme on the nose. Ripe boysenberry and cream flavours adorn a rich and rounded mid-palate that finishes with subtle notes of cocoa and cloves. The use of some whole fermentation adds backbone and a subtle dried herb complexity. Toasted oak contributes savouriness while the tannins asset their presence but are soft and inviting.
A complex fruit bomb with a serious demeanour and broad but svelte structure. A wine that truly screams more!
