A blend of Sam Neill's (of Jurassic Park Fame) four Central Otago Pinot Noir vineyards this wine is the flagship of the Two Paddocks estate, an organically grown barrel selection. Most of the work in the vineyards is done by hand and the wine is made using traditional methods including 25% whole bunch, which adds wonderful bright fruit flavours and a vibrancy to the wine. The wine is matured in a mix of old and new French oak. A forward and rich wine with blackcurrant, red plum and spicy aromatics. A dense and persistent textured mouthfeel but balanced with good acidity
Winemaker Dean Shaw's notes: Bramble, spice and wild herb aromatics sit gently on the nose, then lead to an elegant finely driven mouthfeel, showing poise, freshness and a lingering persistent finish.
Aging Potential: Drinking well now and will still be great in 7 years. This wine will drink well in its youth and has the potential to age.
