  • 2019 Devils Staircase Pinot Noir, RockburnRed Wine

    2019 Devils Staircase Pinot Noir, Rockburn

    £1985

    This Pinot Noir bursts with flavours of red cherry, cranberry and bramble fruit. Rounded and fruity on the palate, with supple tannins and a very moreish finish. This is devilishly good.

    The Devil’s Staircase wines are inspired by the winding road leading from Queenstown to Kingston along the shores of Lake Wakatipu. Sourced from several Central Otago vineyards, the Devil’s Staircase Pinot Noir takes the willing down into the realm of decadence and Bacchanalian delights. Here, everything is pleasure spiced up with a bit of naughty.   The unrelenting Central Otago environment tortures the vines whose twisted limbs produce a wine worthy of absolution; strong and sensual with lashings of dark fruit, sinfully succulent and devilishly good.

    £3200

    Owned by actor Sam Neill – of Jurassic Park, The Piano and Peaky Blinders fame – Two Paddocks is a fabulous winery in Central Otago that produces outstanding Pinot Noir and Riesling.

    This Estate Riesling from the 2013 vintage is estate-grown at Earnscleugh, near Alexandra, in the Red Bank Vineyard and is a brilliant wine that will excel with food.  Aromas of sweet mandarin, lemon & lime flower and minerals drift from the glass.  On the palate, it is dry with vibrant flavours of lime and lemon, crisp green apple and thyme laced elderflower that build across the palate to a long dry finish.

  • 2009 Packspur Pinot Noir, Mt DifficultyRed Wine

    2009 Packspur Pinot Noir, Mt Difficulty

    £9500

    The ‘Single Vineyard’ Pinot Noir wines of Mt Difficulty rival the ‘Block’ wines of Felton Road as the most highly-regarded of Central Otago. They join an elite band of superb, terroir-driven releases of Pinot Noir from New Zealand that are demanding a place alongside fine Burgundy wine. The ‘Single Vineyard’ wines are only made when the character of the vineyard site can be expressed faithfully with accompanying exceptional quality. ]

    This 2009 Packspur is a very elegant Pinot with a beautiful perfume of velvety, raspberry/ cranberry notes; adding complexity and intrigue are clove and anise spice. Rich, full, red fruit of the forest palate entry leads into a well-textured lush midpalate. Finally, lovely finely structured tannins round out this dense and concentrated wine.

    The grapes for the wines that carry the Mt Difficulty label have traditionally been sourced from vineyards situated on the Southside of the Kawarau River at Bannockburn. The Growers Series is a recent addition to the Mt Difficulty portfolio, allowing us to showcase the terroir of different sub-regions. Packspur Vineyard is situated on Heany Road in Lowburn, on the northern side of Cromwell (as opposed to Bannockburn to the South). The vineyard takes its name from the track that was used to pack supplies over the Pisa Range, from the Lowburn Valley to the gold fields of the Cardrona Valley. The vineyard irrigation is a miners’ water right from 1863.
