Pinot Noir

Its Origins

When Brian and Cheryll Sanders planted the first vines in 2003, this patch of Mt Pisa Station was a touch beyond the winemaking rout in the developing Cromwell Basin. But that was then and now Charcoal Gully’s alpine-cooled Mediterranean climate looks like a plum spot for a ripe but focussed style of predominantly Central Otago Pinot Noir, along with some Gewurztraminer. Pedigree and quality are now working hand in hand, with the vineyard managed by the Diceys of Mt Difficulty fame and ex-Peregrine Peter Bartle acting as winemaker.

What The Critics Say

4.5 Stars and Best Buy, Cuisine Magazine

"This label is a regular achiever at Cuisine pinot tastings. The 2014 version is typically inky, rich and powerful, offering lashings of dark berryfruit flavours, well supported by a sturdy acid/tannin frame. Tailor-made for devotees of the dark, pure, ripe style of pinot."

93/100 Cameron Douglas MS

"Vibrant, youthful and fruity bouquet with aromas of dark cherries and dried raspberry, spices of toasty French oak barrel, a stony earthy quality and youthful complexity. On the palate - powerful, fruity, earthy and dry. Flavours reflect the core of red berry fruits and raspberry, there’s plenty of tannin and acidity for texture with fruit and oak flavours for contrast. Still youthful and can remain in your cellar if you like. Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+. If opened between 2022 and 2024 - I suggest it be enjoyed with food." Drink 2022 - 2028
