Bannockburn | Carrick Winery | Pinot Noir | Central Otago | New Zealand
Red Wine | 14.5% | Vegan, Organic
Located in the world’s southernmost winegrowing region, the name ‘Carrick’ is derived from the gold-mining town and the mountain range to which the estate points. Famous for their quality Pinot Noir and dedicated to producing estate-grown, wild fermented, small batch and sustainable wines, the Carrick Bend on their logo is a knot that symbolises the union between the land and their people.
All viticultural tasks are carried out manually; from pruning, leaf plucking, and shoot-thinning right through to harvesting. The wines are vinified separately according to plots then matured in French oak barrels (20% new) for 12 months before blending without fining or filtration. The reward for such investment and attention to detail manifests itself in an approachable, concentrated wine, crammed with black cherries and raspberries with a lovely, fragrant undertone of violets.
Domaine Jaegar | Pinot Noir | Rully | France
Red Wine | 13% | Vegan, Organic
Organically farmed and with a minimum vine age of 35 years, letting nature take its course, Hélène Jaeger-Defaix manages this estate in the same spirit as their vineyards in Chablis. With severe debudding to control vine yield, hand harvested grapes, and the use of natural yeasts wine production here isn’t rushed. The pressing is also slow and gentle, to extract only the best juice. Post fermentation the wine is aged for a further 18 months in French oak barrels with batonnage or stirring the lees, to enhance the elegance of the wine, and this exudes elegance! Aromas of redcurrant, raspberry and blackberry on the nose. The palate is refined and elegant with red fruit, hints of spice and a beautiful silky, supple tannin structure. With fresh acidity and sustained length, this is a standout wine.
