Nestled in the deep south of New Zealand is one of the most intriguing winemaking regions in the world. Renowned for its Pinot Noir, Central Otago is unforgettable – for its splendour and its flavour complexity.
Nestled around these exposed peaks lies the jagged Kawarau River. It’s Southern banks experience harsh winters, hot summers and long autumns. The ripening period here varies; from the higher-altitude western Gibbston Valley – where it’s longer, down to the warmer, drier eastern Bannockburn area. The Bannock Brae Pinot Noir is our flagship wine, and typically always receives 5 star reviews.
