Peregrine Pinot Noir 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

A classic Pinot Noir matured French oak barrels for 9 months. The fruit has<br/>produced a wine with ample concentration and great depth of colour. The palate<br/>is brimming with sweet berry fruit, violets and spice. With a little patience,<br/>it will become more complex, as savoury components develop. Great with smoked<br/>duck. Drinking well now, but it will continue to impress up to 2010.

Peregrine Wines is located in the Gibbston region of Central Otago – just an easy 20 minute drive from Queenstown, deep in the heart of the South Island of New Zealand. Snow capped mountains dominate the landscape for at least 8 months of the year, with vineyards in the valleys below - a continental climate giving the area hot and dry summers with cool nights. Peregrine's prime focus is on growing premium Pinot Noir and white varieties from their estate managed vineyards. These are all meticulously hand-tended and farmed under a sustainable philosophy. Peregrine has its vineyards in the two top regions of the area, Gibbston and Cromwell. These areas typically produce intensely flavoured wines of finesse and elegance with the predominantly schist soils adding mineral complexity. From modest beginnings in 1998, the label has grown from a ‘virtual’ operation to a modern winery containing lots of stainless steel, oak barriques and diligent (sometimes sleep deprived) employees. The winemaking approach, however, has always been along traditional lines with minimal intervention to let the unique fruit flavours of Central Otago do the talking. Central Otago is a challenging region in which to produce quality wines but we feel that the consistent success of our wine is well worth the effort. Read less
