Pinot Noir is an incredibly honest varietal, telling the unique story of its place of origin like no other.
The winery aim to let each individual parcel of fruit tell that story by exclusively hand-picking at optimum flavour ripeness, gentle handling and cap management in the winery, and careful selection of oak to ensure the wines’ true characters are never overshadowed.Nanny Goat Central Otago Pinot Noir 2021 fruit was hand picked and gently de-stemmed without crushing in order to retain as many whole berries as possible.
