We're excited to kick-off the 2019 winter season with the release of a new 2018 Pinot Noir called ‘The Chosen’.
We not only sources fruit from our own exceptional sites, but also from select vineyards around the varied sub-regions of Central Otago. Once in a while the nuances of a site and season conspire to generate fruit of remarkable character, ideal for a single vineyard expression of terroir distinct from our estate range.
The grapes for this wine have been sourced from such an exceptional site in Gibbston, the highest sub-region in Central Otago and nestled between Cardrona and the Remarkables, New Zealand’s premier ski fields. These extreme conditions result in a lighter though still intense Pinot Noir which has been made with minimum handling from vineyard to bottle making this wine suitable for vegans.
Crafted for immediate enjoyment, this single vineyard wine is ready to drink now - ideally after a long day on the slopes - offering a rare opportunity to indulge in a premium wine without exercising any patience first.
‘The Chosen’ Pinot Noir 2018 is available from 1 June 2019 in selected restaurants, fine wine stores including Glengarry Wines as well as our Online Shop and Cellar Door for NZD65 (RRP).
