Winemakers Notes

‘Razorback’ is a word that evokes images of rugged peaks, and a harsh, but beautiful, landscape. Vintage Central Otago in other words! This year the wine is based on a single parcel of fruit from a Clutha vineyard, in the Cromwell Basin, with smaller components from Clyde and Alexandra vineyards. The parcels were separately cool-fermented, with daily plunging, followed by a few weeks maceration in tank before going into oak for about 10 months. The final blend was assembled prior to bottling on November 25th. 

Alc 13 %
Acid 5.59 g/L
Res sugar Nil
pH 3.82

Tasting Notes
Colour: Medium coloured , this wine has a garnet core and red rim.
Bouquet: High toned floral notes, red cherries, Black Doris plums, hints of violets and a lovely background of subtle oak.
Palate: Full bodied for Pinot, with firm, yet fine grained tannins and masses of sweet fruit in the mid palate.

Already approachable, but we expect this wine to develop for a number of years.

Independent reviewer’s comments

"Pristine and gorgeously fruited, the wine shows Black Doris plum, violet, olive and almond notes on the nose, followed by a silky-smooth palate delivering supple texture and fine polished tannins. Elegant yet flavoursome with a lingering velvety finish. At its best: now to 2026". Sam Kim.
