WINE BACKGROUND

VINTAGE REGION

This single vineyard wine was soley sourced from our vineyard in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. The vineyard's free draining loam soils over schist gravel makes it a natural home for outstanding Pinot Noir. The huge diurnal temperatures also adds structure and increases concentration.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

2011 was a mixed season in Central Otago. It started with an unusually warm November and December which made it feel like we were heading for an early harvest. However, a much cooler December followed which was great as it slowed the ripening. Unfortunatley the cooler unsettled weather also brought some intermittent rain which gave us higher disease pressure than usual. By harvest Mother Nature was back on our side with a clam and settled Autumn. A more challenging season but expertly managed by our vineyard team to produce wines of full flavour and structure.
