Two Paddocks Pinot Noir 2019
The flagship from Two Paddocks – an organically grown barrel selection from the estate properties. In 2014 this wine was produced from three of the four Neill family central Otago vineyards. These small sites are high-density planted in a range of clonal material cropped to under 5 Tonne per hectare with most vineyard practices carried out by hand. As in the vineyard, the wine is hand crafted using traditional methods including a 25% whole bunch indigenous fermentation and hand plunging. Maturation is in French barriques for 11 months, using a mix of older and new (25%) barrels.
Ripe red fruit, violet, spice and some blackcurrant brooding aromatics. This wine shows a beautiful soft and rich palate with a lovely elegant drive and persistence.
