Bob Campbell, The Real Review "Fragrant, floral aroma with the scent of red rose leads to a more fruit-forward palate with dark cherry/berry characters with subtle fresh herb flavours. A backbone of fine, ripe tannins gives energy and suggests cellaring potential."

Cameron Douglas MS "An enticing mineral laden bouquet with scents of chalky clay soils then a core of light red fruits and barrel spices then a soft smoky soil quality. Undeniably complex with a pinosity and charm. Equally enticing on the palate with texture then flavour, an abundance of fine tannins from needle point to moderate then acidity and fruit flavours delivering a a core of red fruits, medium+ acidity and length developing complex finish."

James Suckling "Currants, black raspberries, ash and peppercorns on the nose. Savory and subtly peppery with a medium body and fine tannins. Tight finish. From organically grown grapes."

Michele's Note "A deep dive into glorious pinot aromas - meaty, plummy, Christmas-cake-spicy! Clean, lithe and very silky on the palate. Nice touch of strap liquorice on the finish with food-friendly astringency."

Huon Hooke, The Real Review "Very deep, bright, youthful purple/red colour, with aromas of black fruits, mixed spices and dried herbs, and a lacing of fragrant oak adding an extra detail. The wine is medium-bodied and firmly structured with abundant, quite firm tannins. It's a bolder, more solid style of pinot that is typical of the region. A rather obvious pinot with an almost overripe fruit note. It has potential for cellaring but already drinks well. " (2020 vintage)

James Suckling "Red and dark cherries, as well as red plums and a spicy oak overlay, as well as some violets and herbs. Gently reductive. There’s a fresh and juicy feel on the palate with silky tannin and fresh cherry fruit."(2020 vintage)

New Zealand Wine Rater "Intense, primary, and potent nose with funky, bitu men sulphides and chary bacon-fat, coffee-grind, barrel characters dominating at first then boysenberry, and liquorice notes emerging with air time. Tight, un-evolved and primary at the moment with a fleshy mid palate, firm acid, spice, and ample, sappy tannins dominating the finish right now. A 'full noise' wine that's begging for more time in the bottle." (2020 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.

The Queensberry range is 100% sourced from our home vineyard in Queensberry. BioGro Certified organic, this single vineyard range sees the benefits of the adoption of organic and regenerative viticultural practices, both environmentally and qualitatively. The effect of healthy soils and resilient vines is evident in the quality of fruit and characteristics of this wine.

One small component contained 100% whole bunches and underwent a period of carbonic maceration prior to being foot stomped - the final blend contains 15% Whole Bunch. Individual fermenters underwent a short pre fermentation maceration before fermenting naturally and being left on skins for up to 32 days before pressing.

After a brief period of settling the wine was racked to 225L French oak barriques (30% new) where it underwent natural MLF and matured for 10 months before being prepared for bottling on the 25th of March 2022.

Alcohol: 14%

Pinot Noir is the dominant red wine grape of Burgundy, now produced in wine regions all over the world, including western Germany, northern Italy, Chile, South Africa, Australia and, perhaps most notably, California, Oregon and New Zealand.

The essence of Pinot Noir wine is its aroma of strawberry and cherry (fresh red cherries in lighter wines and stewed black cherries in weightier examples), underpinned in the most complex examples by hints of forest floor. Well-built Pinot Noirs, particularly from warmer harvests, also exhibit notes of leather and violets, sometimes approaching the flavor spectrum of Syrah.
