Two Paddocks Pinot Noir is grown entirely on four small estate kvineyards in Central Otago. In some vintages, listening carefully, they realised that one of these sites may have something extraordinary to say in its own right. It is only then that they will make one of these very rare single-vineyard wines.
The Fusilier Vineyard is named in honour of Sam’s father, Major Dermot Neill, a soldier in the Royal Irish Fusilier Regiment for twenty years before returning home to Dunedin, New Zealand, where he ran the family Wine & Spirit business, Neill & Co. Planted entirely in 2000, The Fusilier is 5.6 hectares of Pinot Noir, on rolling northerly facing terraces at the western end of Felton Rd and bordered by the vineyard of the same name. Soils on the terraces consist of deep alluvial fans, which are made up of varying depths of silt, sand, and gravel layering all derived from the mountainous raw schist parent material.
Spicy dark black currant, violet, and lifted herb aromatics. This gives way to an elegant texturally driven wine showing a strong sense of place, density, and interest.
