A juicy and enticing Pinot Noir from Central Otago. Aromas of bold cherry and fresh red berries are underpinned by savoury notes and spicy oak. On the palate, dark fruit flavours flow into a smooth palate, delivering a long finish with fine tannins and juicy acidity.

This wine was sourced from our Claim 431 Vineyard in the Bendigo sub-region of Central Otago. The vineyard’s free draining loam soils over schist gravel make it a natural home for growing outstanding Pinot Noir. The huge diurnal temperature variation, adds to the structure and fruit concentration of the wine. A portion of this wine was aged in French oak barriques, while the balance was matured in stainless steel to retain fruit character.

Beyond the Bottle

Central Otago

Central Otago is New Zealand's southernmost wine region. What was once a place of rabbits and gold is now the area in which we grow and harness Pinot Noir in Central Otago. The long growing season and summer heat deliver beautiful flavours wrapped in bright, pure red and dark fruit aromas. After time in the bottle, the true spirit of Claim 431 Vineyard reveals itself.

2019

The vintage behind this wine

The 2019 vintage started well with a fantastic flowering period that ensured good crop levels. The warm weather that followed ensured fruit ripened beautifully, with intense and well-rounded flavours. 

It began as an adventure. 

Our founders were a courageous couple who embarked on a sailing tour of the world. On one of the earliest stops, they found New Zealand. They quickly fell in love and decided to end the tour of the world in favour of building a mud house in New Zealand and planting a vineyard.  After preparing the land and planting vines, they used the local earth to build their home. That home became our brand. Over twenty years on, with a renewed sense of energy, we remain as in touch with the land as our name suggests.
