Winemaker Notes

The 2011 Pinot Noir is an elegant wine showing aromas of dark cherry, florals and spice. Ripe berry fruit and wild herb characters combine on the palate with fine tannins giving wonderful complexity and length.

Critical Acclaim

BH 91
Burghound.com
A highly perfumed nose features essence of red pinot fruit and a hint of crushed leaf. There is a lovely purity to the lilting, detailed and vibrant middle weight flavors that culmintate in a dusty, delineated and lingering finish. This attractively vibrant effort is lighter in style yet packs plenty of flavor authority. In a word, excellent.
TP 90
Tasting Panel
Silky and smooth with bright cherry and tangy acidity; bright and crisp with fine balance and racy style.

Peregrine Winery Video

Peregrine Wines winery and vineyards are located in the southernmost grape-growing region in the world, at latitude 45 degrees south, in Central Otago, the heart of New Zealand’s South Island. Central Otago is New Zealand’s only inland and elevated wine growing region, with vineyards nestled in breathtaking river valleys, clinging to snow-capped mountainsides or perched gently on the shores of crystal clear lakes. Peregrine Wines is named in honor of New Zealand’s endemic falcon (Karearea in Maori), a bird without rival or fear. A bird that combines both power and finesse, the essence of Peregrine’s range of wines. A boutique, artisanal producer, Peregrine focuses on Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Chardonnay. It is a brand that has, since its first vintage in 1998, gained a reputation both domestically and internationally as one of New Zealand’s iconic wine brands. The winery has been awarded numerous international and domestic trophies, gold medals, and accolades that fully justify this status.

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.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
