Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Darnley Corner Vineyard is situated in Waipara, North Canterbury and was planted in three stages from 2006 to 2008 in 4 varieties; Pinot Noir, Riesling, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc. A boutique, family-run vineyard of 10 hectares, Darnley Corner has a vision of producing the highest quality grapes for premium wines. The concentrated planting of vines (1.2m vine spacing and 2.2m rowspacing) aims to assist in achieving more intense flavours.

The Pinot Noir vines are tendered by family throughout the growing season, producing no more than 1 to 1.5kg of fruit per vine. This allows a concentration of flavours. The grapes are then carefully hand harvested and crafted into this superb wine. The 2015 vintage is the 4th vintage of Darnley Corner Pinot Noir.

This wine, crafted exclusively from grapes grown at Darnley Corner Vineyard, exhibits notes of red and black cherries, raspberry blossom, spice, fine grain tannins and has a stony length."
5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, September 2016 (2015 Vintage)
"The wine combines rich fruit intensity with seductive savoury undertones, displaying fragrant aromas of dark berry, game, nutmeg and clove with hints of smoked meat and dried herbs. The palate delivers excellent weight and concentration, wonderfully supported by silky texture and polished tannins. The wine is immediately appealing with attractive fruit flavours with engaging savoury notes. At its best: now to 2020."
