Bald Hills is located on Cornish Point Road, Bannockburn.The property is bordered by the "bald" Cairnmuir hills and the Kawarau River, with panoramic, jaw-dropping views towards the Pisa Range and glacier-carved terraces above Lowburn. Passionate owners, Blair and Estelle Hunt are there to tell their story and share their joy in their idyllic site and the outstanding wines it produces- Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling and a delicious Pinot Rosé they call "Friends and Lovers". Bald Hills' greatest triumph was in winning the international trophies for Pinot Noir at world competitions Decanter and IWC, as well as a recent full scoop of awards in Sydney.
What The Critics Say
95/100 and Gold Medal, Decanter Awards 2017
"Floral strawberry and maraschino cherry aromatics. On the palate fine sweet tannins that give the wine a savoury/sappy note; really pretty red fruit behind, plus a fine mocha edge. Lovely length. Superb."
Trophy for Best Wine of Competition, Sydney International Wine Awards
"A bigger more powerful wine. Dark berry fruit, ripe and rich. A more oak driven wine, firmish tannins cleanse the palate and give lovely drive to the middle palate. Exceptional length and purity of fruit." -- Stuart Halliday, Judge. "Bright, perfumed Pinot nose. Lovely cherry, nice oak & complexity. Lovely silky Pinot mouth feel, elegant, complex and long." -- Kym Milne, Judge. Also awarded Trophies for 'Best Pinot Noir' and 'Best Red Wine'
94/100 Bob Campbell MW (2014 vintage)
"Aromatic and intensely flavoured pinot noir with dark-fleshed plum, black cherry, liquorice, smoky bacon and toasty oak flavours. Richly-textured, powerful wine with a lengthy finish. Good now but should develop well in bottle. 20/7/2016." Note: Bob gives this wine an average rating of a stellar 94.3/100
