Black Estate have certainly established themselves as one of the stars of Waipara in recent years. Their wines are outstanding across the board and their winery restaurant is so busy it can be a challenge to get into on the weekend! This is fantastic Pinot and equally as nice at home as it is at Black Estate.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Fire brick hue. Compelling fresh and complex aromas of wild forest berry’s, wild rose petal, and humid earth. Silky mouth coating tannins that gradually melt to reveal rich berry fruits, red current, and spice. The balance gives a clear impression of the soft, fertile and highly mineralised sedimentary clay soils of the Home Vineyard. This is an unfiltered wine with small amounts of sediment. Please allow the bottle to stand and settle before pouring. Decanting will allow maximum expression of aroma and purity of fruit to emerge. Drink now to 2025."


Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, June 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"A beguiling complexity with a core of ripe, highly scented dark berries and red flowers, dried herb and core of minerality. Aromas of sweet gentle baking spices of French barrel and a leesy smoky complexity. Tense, ripe, fruity, youthful, varietal and pure fruited on the palate. Textures form polished tannins and medium+ acidity, then flavours of dark cherry and plum, raspberry and chalk. A lengthy finish with tension and poise. A lovely wine that deserves some cellar time with best drinking from late 2022 through 2028+."


Reviews for the previous vintages below…


94/100 Christina Pickard, Wine Enthusiast (2018 Vintage)
"Nicholas Brown and Penelope Naish are part of the new wave of talent in North Canterbury, making organically farmed wines with minimal intervention. There’s a lovely vibrancy of color to this vintage of Pinot, and a raw energy. Oodles of crunchy fresh strawberry notes are backed by cinnamon, clove, flower stalks and stone. The sappy tannins have a surprising bite but an easy, natural presence rather than being oak-driven. There’s beautiful fruit purity and an overall cool climate, unadulterated vibe."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Certified organic, the 2018 vintage is ruby-hued, with a highly fragrant, savoury bouquet. Medium-bodied, it has strong, vibrant, plummy, spicy, nutty flavours, fresh acidity, and excellent complexity. Best drinking 2022+."


Yvonne Lorkin, October 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"You don’t have to say mushroom paté twice to get me opening a bottle of the Black Estate Home North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2017. With 75% whole berries in the 100% wild ferment (kickstarted in the vineyard itself) then hand and foot plunged, it’s an earthy, forest-floor scented, cherry and raspberry-edged pinot that is gently perfect sipping with this sensational spread. Plump, smooth, softly-styled and nicely balanced, it’s some North Canterbury niceness indeed."


4 Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Certified organic, the 2017 vintage, estate-grown in the Home Vineyard at Omihi, was hand-picked from vines planted in 1994 and 2011. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, it was matured for a year in seasoned French oak barriques, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright ruby, it is medium-bodied, with moderately concentrated, plummy, spicy, slightly nutty flavours, threaded with fresh acidity, and a lively, finely structured finish. Best drinking 2022+."


95/100 Jamie Goode, August 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"12.5% alcohol. From 1994 plantings, 4 hectares, 1841 vines/ha, wild ferment, 28 days on skins. A beautifully assured, complex, textural Pinot with warm, sweet cherry and plum fruit, with some nice savoury detail. There’s a subtle green sappiness underneath the smooth, fine-grained fruit. It’s fully ripe but also fresh and with nice integrated greenness. I really love the non-fruit complexity to this wine, and on the second day it’s even more compelling."


93/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, June 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Red cherry, raspberry, white pepper, brambles. Strong, pleasing entry to the wine. Glossy texture, just ripe cherry flavours, sloshy feel in the palate but with crisp acidity and a light pull of tannins. A little sour-sweet deliciousness to close. Lovely wine this, ease of drinking all there too."

    5 star review  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

    5 star review  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!
