The most continental climate of New Zealand’s wine regions, Central Otago enjoys hot days and cool nights. Although short, the growing season is extremely intense; hot summer days, and low rainfall mean the vineyards are dependent on careful irrigation. The vineyards we are sourcing our grapes from are planted with a variety of Pinot Noir clones, leaving us with a Pinot Noir which is very distinctive in style and layered with complexity.
Walking, cycling or horse riding the Otago Central Rail Trail is a great way to see the dramatic landscapes of this part of the country. The Rail Trail is a 150km long old railway route, between Clyde and Middlemarch. In the winter give snowboarding a try or stay indoors and check out the talents of local artists in the galleries and craft shops throughout the region.
