2020 CENTRAL OTAGO GROWING SEASON
Following a fine start, vintage 2020 had cool, unsettled conditions over December and January. Early developing vineyards had even flowering and set, later ones had truncated flowering and uneven set and development. Whilst the weather stabilised through March and April, the vintage required careful negotiation in order to manage the wide range of vineyard, vine, and bunch variances. Yields were low, with real focus on fruit flavours.
Cellar with confidence for up to 10 years.
A deeper style Pinot Noir pairs nicely with Duck & Lamb.
