Product Information

The First Paddock is our original much loved Two Paddocks vineyard. Planted in 1993, it is now one of the older blocks in Central Otago. Superbly situated in the midst of upper Gibbston, planted in carefully selected Burgundian clone pinot noir vines and meticulously tended. This is a thoughtfully crafted expression of our foundation site.

Tasting Notes

A amazing expression of Pinot Noir, showcasing a bewildering balance of fruit and structure. Bright wild flower, spice and dark red fruit aromatics leads to an ethereal mineral derived palate. Showing great tension, drive and persistence.

A truly staggering wine with a cellering capacity up p to12 years
