Winemaker Notes

A full purple magenta color. The nose is lush with ripe dark Pinot fruits. Plum, black cherry, licorice and spice dominate while a lovely smokiness from high quality French oak adds dimension.

The palate is a powerful Pinot statement, rich dark, sweet fruits fill the mouth and layer as the palate builds. Chocolate, mocha and licorice support the fruit intensity while fine, ripe, powdery tannins add weight, richness and length.

A definite keeper, this wine has the structure to age for 8 to 10 years.

"Good full red. Aromas of dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and wild spices, with more floral lift than the bottling from Marlborough. Suave and fine-grained but also serious and dense, with suggestions of raspberry liqueur and dark chocolate. A nicely concentrated young Pinot Noir with plenty of palate presence, not to mention good sappy life in the mouth. Finishes firmly tannic and persistent. I'd hold this for a year or two before pulling the cork."

The company is fully owned by Konrad and Sigrun Hengstler. They originally migrated from Germany to Australia and then, having decided to become involved in the wine industry, made the move from there to New Zealand to plant Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Marlborough. Riesling was added with the first planting to produce a dry, austere style Riesling. The plantings also include Pinot Noir, the ideal red grape to suit the diurnal climate of Marlborough.

Home to the globe’s most southerly vineyards, which are cultivated below the 45th parallel, Central Otago is a true one-of-a-kind wine growing region, but not only because of its extreme location.

Central Otago is more dependent on one single variety than any other region in New Zealand—and it isn’t Sauvignon blanc. They don’t even make Sauvignon blanc there.

Pinot Noir claims nearly 75% of the region’s vineyards with Pinot Gris coming in a far second place and Riesling behind it. This is also New Zealand’s only wine region with a continental climate, giving it more diurnal and seasonal temperature shifts than any other.

The subregion of Bannockburn has enjoyed the most success historically but the area’s exceptional growth has moved to the promising regions of Cromwell/Bendigo and Alexandra districts. Central Otago is known for its fruity and full-bodied Pinot noir. With the freedom to experiment here, growers and winemakers are easily exhibiting the area’s great potential.
