Peregrine Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Peregrine Wines is located amongst the rugged mountains and lakes of Queenstown, Central Otago, in the South Island of New Zealand. Central Otago`s climate is the closest they have in New Zealand to a continental climate. Founded and owned by Greg Hay, Peregrineís prime focus is on growing premium Pinot Noir from their estate managed vineyards. The fruit for the is sourced from low-cropping vineyards in the Cromwell basin, with a small amount coming from Gibbston. Traditional winemaking techniques are used to produce this Pinot Noir, enabling gentle tannin extraction and creating a complex foundation of flavours and textures. This is a rich and concentrated wine with appealing ripe plum and black cherry fruit. It has a good mouth feel and persistent finish.

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
