Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir

Carrick Vineyards, Bannockburn, Central Otago

Vibrant fruit with fragrant aromatics are the hallmarks of this wine. The vintage was slightly lighter than the 2016 with red fruits to the fore. The wine shows texture and a lingering finish.

Carrick Excelsior Pinot Noir

Bannockburn

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. Derived from a particular parcel of older vines on our Cairnmuir Vineyard, each barrel in the final blend is further selected after an initial 10 months barrel ageing.

Carrick The Magnetic Pinot Noir image

Carrick The Magnetic Pinot Noir

Bannockburn

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.
