Limited deal on a 'trophy magnet' Pinot. Quiet achievers at Bald Hills do a superb 'insider' Pinot Noir that scoops overseas awards and gets a remarkable average score of 94.3/100 from Bob Campbell MW. But an EXPLOSION of recognition for 2015 has netted a 95/100 from Decanter and three Trophies at Sydney that included the big one: Best Wine of Competition. Impressive yet sophisticated and foodie, this is the very best of Bannockburn wine for a price that remains very, very ordinary. (For how long?) Awards like this could see it evaporate overnight -- Get in quick!

Pinot Noir

Its Origins

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
