The Real Review - Huon Hooke

Good intensity of colour, which is typical of Central Otago pinots, even the cheaper ones. The bouquet is slightly meaty over typical earthy and dark plum regional pinot aromas, the palate deliciously soft and slurpy, with very good depth of flavour for the money. (36% Alexandra, 46% Bannockburn, 18% Gibbston. 11% whole-bunches)

Two Paddocks

Two Paddocks is an iconic New Zealand wine producer, founded by the esteemed actor Sam Neill. The winemaking journey of Two Paddocks began in 1993 when Sam purchased a 2.5-hectare vineyard in Central Otago, a region known for its superb Pinot Noir. Inspired by his passion for winemaking and the stunning landscapes of New Zealand, Sam expanded the vineyard holdings and planted several grape varieties, primarily Pinot Noir. The name "Two Paddocks" originates from the two small vineyards that Sam initially purchased, and it reflects his commitment to crafting wines that authentically represent the Central Otago region. Sam Neill actively participates in the winemaking process, reflecting his genuine love for the craft. He has become an influential figure in the New Zealand wine industry, not only for his fame as an actor but also for his remarkable wines.
