New Zealand Pinot Power Pack

The ultimate collection of New Zealand Pinot Noir.



About The Pack

If you are a fan of New Zealand Pinot Noir, you simply won't find a better collection anywhere on the internet.

This is a curated selection of the most iconic Pinot Noirs in New Zealand.

It covers the biggest names from the major regions, all designed to blow your mind.

Any number of these would not be out of place in a Best New World Pinot Noir tasting. It's a tour de force of New Zealand's finest and it comes with a tidy discount. It's the perfect gift for a connoisseur.

2018 Rippon Jeunesse Pinot Noir

The Jeunesse Pinot Noir comes from the less established vines on Rippon vineyard.

Owner/winemaker Nick Mills sees this as a more youthful expression of his family site. It's a brighter, more ethereal style of Pinot Noir as opposed to the older vine wines that have a great level of depth and gravitas.

Don't mistake that for a drop in quality, this is a gorgeous wine, one that many estates would love to have as their flagship, it's just a more adolescent voice of this great New Zealand vineyard.

2018 Burn Cottage Vineyard Pinot Noir

Burn Cottage is one of the most celebrated Pinot Noirs in New Zealand, and this another tremendous release, that could be enjoyed young but would be best kept in the cellar for a few years.

A biodynamic vineyard from day one, this site has been groomed to perfection to produce Pinot Noir that can rival any in the world. Many believe this to be one of the most impressive versions of Pinot Noir outside of Burgundy.

Planted in only 2003, each year the vines get older, and the more intense and complex the wine gets. It's the rare combination of power and finesse that sets the Burn Cottage Pinot Noir apart.

2019 Charteris Central Otago Pinot Noir

This, PJ's 'village' Pinot Noir, comes from a vineyard high up on Felton Road in Central Otago.

The aim here is to craft something that is complex yet approachable in its youth.

PJ includes a little whole bunch which gives a gentle smokiness to what is lovely ripe and open fruit. It's a much more subtle and restrained style of Otago Pinot Noir and one that's immediately approachable.

Still, it shows plenty of power, plenty of fruit. It's a lovely example for the region which will only get better over the next 3-5 years.

2018 Prophet's Rock Home Vineyard Pinot Noir

The Home Block Pinot Noir burst onto the NZ wine scene when its first release, the 2005 vintage, was named in Bob Campbell's top 10 Pinot Noirs in Central Otago.

Since then it has been one of the most consistently highly rated Pinot Noirs in the region.

The Home Block Pinot vines yield intense fruit, winemaker Paul Pujol mustering all he has learnt from his time at noted Oregon producer Rex Hill and in Chambolle-Musigny, Burgundy, to harness the power of his site.

It's an Old-World-Meets-New-World style of Pinot Noir. Structured, savoury and a killer in the cellar.

2019 Novum Pinot Noir

What a lovely elegant expression of NZ Pinot from Novum, the new(ish) guys on the Marlborough block.

Will and Rachel, the Novum winemaking duo, have selected parcels from two cool vineyard sites in the Southern Valleys to create a linear, refined wine that has great deftness and length.

The nose is all bright cherry and pomegranate, with a hint of earthiness. In the mouth there is a pure line of supple fruit with a savoury edge. We're guessing some truffly, autumnal flavours will develop with time - can't wait to try this in a few years.

A Marlborough Pinot of delicate class.

2018 Chard Farm Tiger Pinot Noir

The Tiger is not very tigerish; more of a bunny rabbit with well-groomed fur if truth be told.

This bunny rabbit is delicious though, a velvety, light-framed, beautifully detailed Otago Pinot Noir, with fruit coming from the cool slopes of the Tiger vineyard in Lowburn.

Though it would respond well to time in the cellar, we loved this subtle refined style at an early age.

Joint top scorer in the Gourmet Traveller Wine South Island Pinot tasting in June 2021.
