  • THE BRIEF
  • Domain Road is situated in the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago, sourcing fruit from two separate vineyards: their estate site, and the Defiance Vineyard on Felton Road - next door to the famed winery of the same name! They release two single-vineyard expressions each year, as well as this Pinot, which is a blend of the two.

    The 2017 vintage encapsulates all that is great about Central Otago - ripe, dark fruits, lifted floral notes, baking spices, and alluring vanilla tones. And at a price that is pretty hard to go past!

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Our Pinot Noir vines grow on two rare Bannockburn sites untouched by miners. For almost 100 years fruit was grown on the Domain Road site, 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.

    Our second vineyard, Defiance on Felton Road is considered to be one of the prime sites in this well known location. Our Pinot Noir vines from these two sites deliver a complexity that reflect the unique location of the vineyards.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    With dark purple hues, this wine is wonderfully complex. Fragrant aromas of blackcurrant, cherry and violets, with a hint of spice and vanilla, are complemented by rich dark fruit, black plum and ripe blackberry, on the palate. A complex, concentrated wine with ample fine tannins and a hint of chocolate and spice in its tantalisingly long finish.

  • WHO MADE IT?
  • Domain Road Vineyard, owned by Graeme and Gillian Crosbie, specialises in award-winning cool climate wines. From grapes grown in the heart of Central Otago wine country, they produce Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir Rosé, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, and Pinot Gris wines. Dedication to excellence combined with a traditional approach means Domain Road Vineyard's wines are now nationally and internationally recognised. The grapes grow on the upper Bannockburn terraces, above the Kawarau River. The vineyards are in a high altitude setting, surrounded by spectacular mountain ranges. The challenging terroir produces wines of structure and elegance, with pure, intense flavours.

    BOB CAMPBELL MW - THE REAL REVIEW


    Appealingly aromatic pinot noir with plum, cherry, chalk, mineral, spice and smoky oak flavours. An elegant and moderately concentrated wine, with a backbone of fine, drying tannins. Nice purity and subtle power.
