Ray Jordan "A most textural and generous wine but one held with close attention from a crisp acidity and edgy lemony grapefruit control. The palate is deeply complex with a nutty creaminess but then the nectarine and citrus notes lift. Went through malo and then had some lees stirring which have clearly contributed to its appealing mouth feel. The finish is almost refreshing. A very nice wine. (2021 vintage)

Cameron Douglas MS "A youthful and delightful bouquet of fresh white fleshed orchard fruits with apple and white peach then gentle baking spices from barrel and a light baked nut and gun-flint quality. A silky texture touches the palate first then a medium+ to full-bodied weight and core fruit flavours immerse the palate in style. Contrasting acidity, flavours of nutty barrel spices, stone fruits, gun-flint and citrus then gently warming alcohol lead to a lengthy and quite frankly, delicious finish. (2021 vintage)

Bob Campbell, The Real Review "A fruit-forward chardonnay with white peach, apricot, ginger, nutty yeast lees and spicy oak flavours. Quite lush but with a fine tannic backbone that prevents any sense of cloying. Accessible and inviting." (2021 vintage)

James Suckling "This has toasted bread, cashew and biscuit notes alongside poached pears, passion fruits and lemons. Creamy and round with a medium to full body and fresh finish. " (2021 vintage)

Micheal Cooper "The 2021 vintage is a distinctly cool-climate style, hand-picked at Bannockburn and Pisa, and fermented and matured for 10 months in French oak puncheons (20 per cent new). Bright yellow/green, with a strong, fresh, citrusy bouquet, it is full-bodied and youthful, with rich, citrusy, slightly appley flavours, gently seasoned with oak, lively acidity and a dry, finely poised finish.

Bob Campbell, The Real Review "Intense and textural chardonnay with toast, grapefruit-citrus, ginger, oyster shell, roasted nut and spicy oak flavours. Smooth-textured wine with good weight and mouth-feel. A very stylish wine that promises to age well." (2019 vintage)

New Zealand Wine Rater "Very much a clean, primary, new-world style bouq uet with tangy, tropical fruit, and bubble-gum aromas with a hint of cinnamon spice, and toasty oak. Quite potent, tasty, and concentrated with plenty of flavour, and vibrant lemon acidity but a little short, and one dimensional at the moment." (2019 vintage)

James Suckling "This has peach and pear aromas with some lemon, nougat and a hint of tropical fruit. The palate has melon and tropical-fruit flavors, as well as some more savory nougat" (2019 vintage)

Organic wines are made from grapes grown without pesticides, following strict organic standards. Organic wines are produced in vineyards that do not use synthetic chemicals. Certified organic wines have been certified by BioGro Organic certification in New Zealand. 

Highly awarded and acclaimed, wine-maker Alan Peters-Oswald is a specialist premium pinot noir maker. 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.

Nestled within a timeless and sensual landscape, Nanny Goat Estate Vineyard sits between 270m and 290m above sea level spread across two ancient, North East facing terraces. This is a region of climatic extremes with typically very hot summers, short autumns and bitterly cold winter days. Challenging conditions for producing world-class cool climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Successive periods of glaciation and recession, followed by erosion by Mata Au / Clutha River have shaped the Nanny Goat Estate landscape by creating distinct terraces of alluvial soils that are pastiche of loess, gravel, schist and mineral quartz. Generations of farming and the associated cultivation of lucerne and other feed crops have added organic matter to the wind blowen loessial topsoil providing us with a nice balance between vine vigor and free draining attributes.
