        Pinot Noir

        New Zealand Pinot Noir has been steadily making an international name for itself for many years now; a place where Old World structure and elegance meets New World power and intensity.

        Native to Burgundy and notoriously fickle (it is world class only in cool-climate regions), the Pinot Noir grape has found in New Zealand a home away from home. Their winemakers tease a tantalising array of distinctive regional and terroir-driven styles from the land.

        It is predominantly grown in the cooler southerly regions. The huge diversity in climates and soils enables a wide range of styles from the five main Pinot producing regions, and it is now second only to Sauvignon Blanc in production volume, with major plantings in five key regions.
