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 2015 with red fruits to the fore. The wine shows texture and a lingering finish.
Carrick Excelsior Pinot Noir
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
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.
Carrick Crown and Cross Pinot Noir
The Crown and Cross is a Pinot Noir produced from grapes which we purchase from a special, different site each year. It provides an opportunity to explore the various sub-regions of Central Otago.
Carrick Unravelled Pinot Noir
Carrick Unravelled is our early drinking offering for Pinot Noir lovers. 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.
