At latitude 45 degrees south, Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Snow topped mountains, rocky ranges and dry tussock hills, a place of climatic extremes, bitterly cold winters, parched soils and discouragingly poor fertility. Designed by the angels in heaven for sublime and stupendous vintages of Pinot Noir. At the very epicentre of the most desirable confluence in Central Otago microclimes is Nanny Goat Vineyard. Conspicuous for her serious weight of fruit, splendid structure and chewy, textural palate, Nanny Goat make a magnificently endowed style, offering the understated power and presence to accompany gourmet game sausages, meaty Mediterranean braises or char grilled rib... That's perfect for porterhouse»

Pinot Noir Central Otago New Zealand

The parched plantings send their roots deep into the inhospitable terrains, struggling for water and yielding meagre harvests of the most intensely flavoured fruit.

Grapes are all hand picked, some whole bunches are included and a component of the wine begins its ferment amongst the vines. A month of cold macerations and natural indigenous yeast vinification is followed by a gentle press into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for completion of malolactic, a judicious term of age, rack and return, before bottling, unfiltered and unfined.
Deep dark beetrot red. Complex bouquets, layers of dark berries and red fruit intertwine with delicate spice. The palate exhibits marvelous power and restraint, a lineal backbone of vibrant acidity in support of a broad mouthfilling, textural canopy of savoury varietal fruits, fine black velvet tannins in support, simply an action packed palate before a lengthy, undulating finish.
