Additional Information

Aromas of bramble and spice, with exotic floral hints followed by a multi layered palate consisting of damson, black cherry making it quintessentially Central Otago.

The First Paddock is the original much loved Two Paddocks vineyard. Planted in 1993, it is now one of the older blocks in Central Otago. Superbly situated in the midst of upper Gibbston, planted in carefully selected Burgundian clone Pinot Noir vines and meticulously tended. This is a thoughtfully crafted expression of our foundation site.

The grapes are handpicked, and 50% of the whole bunches are fermented and then aged in medium toast French barriques for 11 months.

And at only 13% abv you can enjoy a second or third glass.

 

The Story of Two Paddocks by Sam Neill 

Two Paddocks started in 1993 with modest ambitions and first planted five acres of pinot noir at their original little vineyard at Gibbston, Central Otago in the deep south of New Zealand.

Sam wanted to produce a good pinot noir that would, at the very least, be enjoyed by his family and friends. To their great surprise, the first vintage in 1997 was much better than they hoped, in spite of a difficult growing season.  1998 was a more distinguished vintage, and in 1999 they were astounded to produce a pinot that was, they thought, world class.  Here was a wine of considerable complexity with an amazing nose, delicious fruit and a good lengthy finish (from clones 10/5 and 5).  So rewarding has this vineyard been over the years (and so unpromising as a sheep paddock) that they planted another 5 acres of Burgundian clones there in 2008 bringing the total acreage at The First Paddock, Gibbston, to 5 hectares.

In short, they have become outrageously ambitious.
