Pinot Noir Sampler

Pinot Noir is the most fickle of grapes…and the second most planted grape in New Zealand.  It is predominantly grown in the cooler southerly regions of Wairarapa, Marlborough, North Canterbury and Central Otago.

Domaine Thomson Explorer Pinot Noir 2019

Domaine Thomson Explorer Pinot Noir 2019

Wonderfully ripe and beautifully lifted, the bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, game, toasted spice and floral aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that’s supple and lingering. It’s gorgeously fruited and expressed, backed by fine chalky tannins, finishing long and pleasingly dry. At its best: now to 2025.

Greywacke Pinot Noir 2018

An ethereal concoction of red fruit and spices: juicy cherries, strawberries and cranberries, intermingled with suggestions of star anise and sarsaparilla, dark tobacco and cloves. This is a highly perfumed, aromatic style of Marlborough pinot,with exotic fruit sweetness and a delicate earthy infusion. The palate has considerable length and classic cool-climate vibrancy.

Black Estate Home Pinot Noir 2017

Fire brick hue. Compelling fresh and vibrant aromas of wild forest berry’s, wild rose petal, and humid earth. Dense mouth coating tannins that are tightly wound and gradually melt to reveal rich berry fruits, red current , and humus. The balance gives a clear impression of the highly mineralised sedimentary clay soils of the Home Vineyard. Drink now to 2028.

Pinot Noir is the most fickle of grapes…and the second most planted grape in New Zealand.  It is predominantly grown in the cooler southerly regions of Wairarapa, Marlborough, North Canterbury and Central Otago.

The huge diversity in climates and soils enables a wide range of styles. Common to all, however, is structure and elegance overlaid by power and fruit-driven intensity.

Here is a selection of different styles of Pinot Noir from three regions, we hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

 

It’s staggering how quickly New Zealand has built a reputation for quality Pinot Noir considering the first commercial bottling of Pinot Noir in the country was in 1987.
