About the Wine
The flagship from Two Paddocks – an organically grown barrel selection from the estate properties.
In 2018 this wine was produced from the four Neill family Central Otago vineyards. These small sites are highdensity planted in a range of clonal material cropped to under 5 Tonne per hectare with most vineyard practices carried out by hand.
As in the vineyard, the wine is hand crafted using traditional methods including a 25% whole bunch, indigenous fermentation and hand plunging. Maturation is in French barriques for 10 months, using a mix of older and new (20%) barrels. Vegan friendly.
About Two Paddocks
Actor Sam Neill planted his original 2 hectare vineyard, the First Paddock site, at Gibbston in Central Otago in 1993.
That vineyard has now been doubled in size and two more blocks added, the 3 hectare Alex Blocks vineyard perched above the Clutha River at Alexandra and the 5.5 hectare Redbank Paddocks site in the Earnscleugh Valley.
