The Real Review - Bob Campbell MW

A blend of organic wines from Two Paddocks own vineyards in Bannockburn, Earnscleugh and Gibbston. A bright, accessible pinot noir with cherry, cedar, new leather, rose petal, spice and nutty oak flavours.

The Real Review - Huon Hooke

Deepish and bright, youthful colour with a good purple tint, and it smells smoky, spicy and faintly vegetal, with perhaps a stemmy infuence, and also whiffs of dried flowers. The palate has good depth and intensity, the flavour framed by generous tannins, which add backbone without astringency. Oak is discernible, helping dry the finish.

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.
