Two Paddocks 2014 Pinot Noir
Winery : Two Paddocks
Proprietor actor Sam Neill started modestly with plantings in Gibbston. In 1999 further vines were planted in Alexandria, Central Otago's most southern sub-region. Recently, Two Paddocks extended their holdings of premium pinot noir growing estates by purchasing established Desert Heart vineyard in Bannockburn.
2014 Two Paddocks Pinot Noir is 100% Alexandra fruit. With 25% whole bunch it has a lovely, quite ethereal perfume - typical Two Paddocks spice and orange rind, as well as black currant. The medium-weight framework works well with the red berry fruits and touches of savoury oak on the palate. Insinuating pinot.
