Otago’s once famous gold mining area. With most of the gold now gone, it’s Pinot Noir making this area famous again.
We look for a wine with many layers and many flavors. The region yields dark, intense wine with purple touches, brooding and developing over time.
We tend to use specific clones to give lovely hints of violet on the nose, backed by ripe cherry and slight smokiness. To describe this wine as “generous” requires contemplation, complex is a better word.
