Nanny Goat Pinot Noir comes from the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago. As with most vineyards there is usually a small parcel or two of outstanding quality fruit that outshine the rest.
The Super Nanny is a limited release wine, made from carefully hand-sorted Pinot Noir bunches, wild yeast ferment with a portion of whole bunch, extended skin contact and 15 months in French Oak. (40% New Oak) The result is a powerful, richly flavoured and textured Central Otago Pinot, which won a Gold Medal from the NZ International Wine Show in 2014 (2013 vintage).
Since the release of its inaugural Pinot Noir in 2005, the Nanny Goat Vineyard has produced wines of elegance, concentration and balance.
Acclaimed winemaker Alan Oswald previously spent 5 years at Cloudy Bay, including two years as Assistant Winemaker. He is a specialist premium Pinot Noir winemaker.
The Central Otago wine region is the world's southern-most commercial wine growing region, and famous for its Pinot Noir. It differs from all other New Zealand wine areas in that it is inland, in the foothills of the Southern Alps. The level of sunlight is very high, something that accounts for the high levels of alcohol that are often found in Central Otago wines.
