Pinot Noir

nevis bluff Pinot Noir


Pinot Noir is a notoriously difficult grape to cultivate that grows best in cooler climates, hence the growing reputation for quality in the Central Otago region. Our terroir produces fruit that is intensely coloured and brimming with flavour. This fruit creates stunning wines with black fruit characteristics and richly perfumed wines, which are typical of Central Otago.

2013 Vintage

Black cherry with spice and mocha notes on the nose. A flowing elegant wine showing texture, depth and persistence.

"Musk and rose, red fruit, plenty of spice and wild herb perfume. Medium bodied, evenly weighted, spiced red fruit, balanced acidity and gentle tannin. Good length. Very attractive."

"Bright raspberry and cranberry-tinged fruits on the nose here, this has a ripe and gently spicy side to it, as well as a gentle herbal thread and hints of meat. The palate has crunchy light bright fruit presence, raspberry and cherry, tangy acid and light tannins."
