An absolute coup from a new Central Otago label! This high-scoring Pinot is dark and penetrating, yet glossy and stylish. An exceptional level of succulence and depth is packed in by ex-Peregrine winemaker Pete Bartle. As strident dark fruits plunge about in themes of tar and earthy spice, interesting herbal and mineral layers are wrapped up in this dynamic and charismatic red. A powerful yet sleek style, this is everything $50 plus Central drinkers usually hope for -- for under $40 it is headed straight to the front of the market. Unstoppable value!

Its Origins

Providore is a brand new label in which winemaker Pete Bartle (ex-Peregrine) brings legendary winemaking skills and access to the best vineyard sources across Central Otago. Named after the providores who once supplied the goldfields, this complete range of Central Otago classic styles are seamlessly balanced and perfectly delivered, offering from the get-go some of the very best value in New Zealand wine.

What The Critics Say

95/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Flagship red made from hand-picked, 100% destemmed grapes from a single vineyard in Queensberry. Dense, deep and concentrated pinot noir with dark-fleshed plum, black cherry, violet and a smattering of fresh herb flavours. Good now but should develop well 25/11/2018." Drink 2018 - 2024

95/100 Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier

"Beguiling and quite intense as the bouquet captivates the senses. Dark cherry, ripe red plum, savoury and gently spicy with aromas of undergrowth and earthy minerality. Complex and dry on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose with plums and black cherry, savoury spices and abundant fine tannins. Medium+ acidity, complex and lengthy finish. A delight to taste and enjoy - think I’ll have a glass!" Drink 2018 - 2026

19/20 Raymond Chan

"Full, deep, purple-hued black-red colour, near impenetrable, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegant and fine in proportion with concentrated aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruit along with an amalgam of plum fruit, dark herbs and suggestions of stalk perfumes and complexities. The aromatics build to form a deep core. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with refined and concentrated flavours of ripe, dark-red berry fruit and dark plums along with nuances of dark herbs sand savoury fresh herbs intermingling with stalk suggestion from the Abel clone. The fruit is rich and luscious, and forms a rounded, deep and dense heart, which is supported by plenty of fine-grained, flowery tannins. The acidity is soft and integrated and the wine carries to a soft, smooth, elegant and nuanced finish. This is a rich and plush, concentrated Pinot Noir with ripe dark-red berry and plum fruit with savoury herb elements on a soft, smooth but fine-structured palate. Serve with casseroles and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 6-7 years. Selected as the best 2017 ferment, Abel clone fruit from a single Queensberry vineyard, hand-picked, destemmed without crushing and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in tank followed by aging in French oak barriques. 290 cases made. 19.0-/20 Nov 2018 RRP $39.00"
