DESCRIPTION
  • Domain Road is a Central Otago Pinot name to watch out for. Situated in the Bannockburn sub-region, their winery borders on the famous vineyards of Felton Road, and is proud to make some equally muscular and dark fruited Pinot. 

  • WINEMAKER'S NOTES

    Our Pinot Noir is grown on our best soils in a part of the vineyard that has not been touched by gold mining. For almost 100 years fruit was grown here, peaches pears and apples originally and then Apricots at a later stage. It has been said that if you can grow Apricots then you can also grow great Pinot Noir and this has certainly been the case at Domain Road.

    Harvested on the 8th and 9th April 2015, the fruit was de-stemmed and fermented in three open-top fermenters. It was then aged in French oak barriques for ten months, of which 27% was new oak.

    TASTING NOTES

    With dark purple hues, this wine is wonderfully complex. Aromas of violets, plums, and cherries, are complemented by the flavours of rich dark fruits with a flourish of pretty red and raspberry on the finish. With good fruit concentration and supportive oak tannins, this wine has a lovely long persistence on the finish.
