CARRICK BANNOCKBURN PINOT NOIR 2015
Wine Region: Otago, New Zealand
Grape: Pinot Noir
Vibrant fruit with fragrant aromatics are the hallmarks of this wine. The vintage was slightly lighter than the 2014 with red fruits to the fore. The wine shows texture and a lingering finish.
About the Winery
Winery stories are rarely straightforward. They twist and weave as the winery develops a character and persona all its own. And so it is with Carrick. Barbara and Steve Green planted a rabbit infested block of land on the shores of the yet to be filled Lake Dunstan in 1994. Their knowledge was academic, with some practical experience as enthusiastic consumers. They loved Pinot Noir and were impressed with the efforts of pioneers Alan Brady and Rolf Mills in the early 1990s.
