Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir image

Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Beautifully balanced, with earthy tones, complementing bright cherry notes. The Bannockburn Pinot Noir goes deliciously well with roast chicken, pork and duck. Or for a meat-free option - vegetarian lasagne with goats cheese and lentils.

Carrick Excelsior Pinot Noir image

Carrick Excelsior Pinot Noir

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Carrick Excelsior - named for the coal seam which was mined during the goldrush and lies beneath the Carrick Vineyards - is our finest expression of Pinot Noir. It is derived from a particular parcel of older vines on our Cairnmuir Vineyard, now 25 years old, which are grown on their own roots, without rootstock. Which we believe gives the vines are greater connection to the soil they are grown in. Only made in great years, and one of only two wines we make which stays in barrel over harvest for a total of 18 months.

It is complex, intense, layered and persistent.

Carrick The Magnetic Pinot Noir image

Carrick The Magnetic Pinot Noir

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Named after a Kawarau River gold dredge, the Carrick Magnetic Pinot Noir is a single block, single variety and single clone wine. Unique and interesting it is only sold direct to customers through our cellar door and wine club. The clone is Abel, said to be a cutting smuggled into the country from a famed Burgundian estate and subsequently confiscated by one Malcolm Abel. Moonlighting as a winemaker in his spare time, Abel a customs officer saw the potential in the cutting and decided to propagate the clone. It is this unique chain of events which then ultimately lead us to plant the Abel clone on a small 0.34ha plot in 2008.

Billet-Doux Pinot Noir image

Billet-Doux Pinot Noir

Bannockburn

The Billet-Doux is a Pinot Noir, made similarly to our other Pinots, but without any addition of Sulphur at arrival into the winery, or any part of the process, including bottling.  

"Fascinating nose, humus, a wild and feral quality; delicious purity of fruit. Silky and textural entry with a little prickle on the tongue, showcasing loganberry, plum and wood smoke with nice chewiness from the tannins. Time adds dark chocolate and charcuterie to the brightness and vivacity, while the tannins are very fine. Rather delicious. No sulphur added."

Carrick Unravelled Pinot Noir image

Carrick Unravelled Pinot Noir

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Carrick Unravelled is our early drinking offering for Pinot Noir lovers. The name references the Carrick Bend our symbol of the union between our people and the land, here it is a metaphor for the more relaxed style of this wine. It's essentially a declassification of wine from the Carrick vineyards, so has all the care and attention of the other Pinots, but bottled earlier with less new oak.

 Carrick Bannockburn Chardonnay image

Carrick Bannockburn Chardonnay

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

This is classic Chardonnay, inviting and unctuous. It is barrel fermented, and aged in oak for around 10 months, which gives the wine time to develop the delicious nutty and biscuity characters. Perfect for enjoying slightly chilled with cheese, a creamy pasta or just by itself after a long day.

A tightly structured chardonnay; the delicately lifted bouquet shows Gala apple, grapefruit, dried grass, oatmeal and almond characters. The palate displays elegant weight and rounded mouthfeel, backed by firm acidity, offering sturdy structure and a persistent chalky finish. At its best: now to 2023. - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Carrick Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay image

Carrick Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

The Cairnmuir Terraces EBM Chardonnay is our top Chardonnay and the name refers to the extended time it spends in barrel before bottling - Extended Barrel Maturation. Hand-picked from fruit grown on the top and lower terraces of our Cairnmuir road vineyard. It is a textural wine with a lovely citrus line and unctuous peach toast notes. Think large glass in front of the fire type of wine. Or a wine to impress at a dinner party. We think it tastes great with roast chicken and mushroom risotto.

Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Gris image

Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Gris

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Our Pinot Gris has a textural element on the palate that is reflective of an Alsatian style whilst retaining a clean acidity that is the hallmark of our windblown glacial soils on the Cairnmuir terraces in Bannockburn. Notes of pear and fresh Braeburn apples are present, balanced by a hint of clove spice.

Delicious with a pear and walnut salad.

The wine is subtle and poised on the nose showing fresh pear, apple and lime peel characters with a lovely savoury nuance. It’s focused and elegantly weighted on the palate with textural mouthfeel and crisp acidity, finishing lingering and mouth-watering. At its best: now to 2023. - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Carrick Dry Riesling  image

Carrick Dry Riesling

Arthur's Vineyard, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Carrick's wines are all about texture. We look to produce a diverse range of wines that will accompany the beautiful creations produced in the restaurant on site at Carrick. The 2017 Dry Riesling is mineral by nature, with aromatics that would lead you to think the wine was heavier on the palate. When in fact the natural acidity obtained from our vineyards helps to deliver a long refreshing finish. 

A palate cleansing wine that screams out for oysters or diamond clams.

Carrick Josephine Riesling  image

Carrick Josephine Riesling

Bannockburn

The Josephine Riesling had its origins in our private (pirate) bottlings of 2004 and 2005 where we found that an early bottling of Riesling with higher residual sugar was both balanced and delicious. It's now very much part of our established range.
