Otago

Vying with Patagonia for the distinction of having the most southerly vineyards on Earth, Otago is now handsomely rewarding the pioneers who first planted it.

Its Pinot Noir, produced in the face of considerable adversity, is widely recognised as a truly marvellous expression of that delicate grape. It is joined by a number of white vines that have also made the bottom of New Zealand a very happy home.

Climate and Conditions

The vineyards of Otago require very careful siting.  Sheltering to the east of the Southern Alps, they cling to hillsides where frost is at a minimum and sunshine at a maximum.  Autumns that are dry and bright allow for the intense fruit flavours to manifest in the wines.  The high production costs in such an environment are naturally passed on to the drinker, but this is matched by the very high quality.

Vines and Styles

Pinot Noir is the star. It can rival top Burgundies for quality and does so with a distinctive, delicate style of its own. Chardonnay, Gewürtztraminer, Pinot Gris and Riesling all produce wines that are fresh and elegant.
