Nanny Goat Vineyard Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is a fickle varietal that demands the utmost attention, both in the vineyard and in the winery to bring its true potential to the fore. It has many guises, from soft and supple to powerful and masculine and everything in between. Pinot Noir is an incredibly honest varietal, telling the story of its own unique place of origin like no other.

We aim to let each individual parcel of fruit tell its story by exclusively hand picking at optimum flavour ripeness, gentle handling and cap management in the winery and careful selection of oak to ensure the wines true characters are never overshadowed.

Delicious already, this is a deeply coloured, mouthfilling, supple red with generous cherry, plum and spice flavours. Showing good freshness and vigour, its gently seasoned with oak, in a savoury, complex style with a rich, smooth finish. Drink now or cellar.

“92 Points + Best Import” – Huon Hooke, Good Food Review. October 2013
From the Bannockburn sub-region, this well-priced pinot is loaded with trademark Central Otago black cherry fruit, with an appealing foresty edge. Deep, lush flavour is richly ripe almost to the point of opulence. Full-bodied, profound and very long on the finish. A sumptuous Kiwi pinot.

“4 Stars” – NZ Pinot Noir 2013 Tasting, Cuisine Magazine. October 2013
4 Stars. This is a youthful, lively rendition. A strong aromatic dose of bright florals introduce what Sophie Otton described as a “pure and beautifully constructed” palate. Bright red fruit notes frolic happily around a maypole of silky tannins.

Nanny puts some fun and class into wine – Warren Barton, The Southland Times. September 2013
A lighter-weighted wine with rich dark berry-fruited flavours, a hint of herbage and florals and a satisfying finish.
