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.

Dark blackcurrant, violet purple sage aromatics on the nose leads to a silky elegant textured wine showing great finesse, poise and depth.

5 Stars

95 PointsThis is immensely seductive on the nose showing sweet cherry, thyme, vanilla, hazelnut and truffle characters. The palate is equally gratifying with excellent weight and flow, wonderfully enhanced by velvety mouthfeel and silky tannins. Multi-layered with wonderful fruit flavours combined with savoury/spicy nuances. At its best: now to 2027.
