Crafted from grapes grown using sustainable principles, from their three vineyards Gibbston, Alexandra and Redbank at Earnscleugh in the Central Otago region, this wine ia a quint-essential cool climate Pinot Noir. As in the vineyard, this wine is hand crafted using traditional methods and aged in small French oak barrels.
Winemaker: Dean Shaw.
Vineyard: Richard Flatman.
Tasting Notes: Dark black fruit, spicy notes and dried herb aromas. This is a dense, dark brooding wine showing loads of texture, depth and persistence. This wine will benefit with bottle age. Approachable in its youth, it will mellow with age.
The fruit was picked by different vineyard block and by clone. Each pick was fermented separately, with the final blending taking place prior to bottling.

"Sam Neill is like a good Pinot Noir" 24th April 2010, The Vancouver Sun, Mia Stainsby.
The actor/winemaker talks about terroir and terriers, sheep and sheepishness, Oscars and wine scores.
Actor and winemaker Sam Neill looks stricken. If he simply had to choose between 99 points from Wine Spectator or an Oscar, which would it be, he was asked. "Do I have to choose? oh my God! Can I take both? Please?
He recoups. "I'll just take a little flattery. That'll do me" he says, more in character with his reserved, gee-shucks manner.
Neill's acting career -- his filmography lists 96 movie and TV roles, including The Piano, Jurassic Park and The Hunt for Red October -- is clearly his day job. But his 17-year-old New Zealand winery is not simply a vacant project, and he's in town to promote Two Paddocks Winery at the Vancouver Playhouse International Wine Festival.
The winery in known for its Pinot Noirs which frequently score in the 90s (out of 100) by the likes of Wine Spectator and Robert Parker.
