The Ceres Composition Pinot Noir is a beautifully composed and stunning Pinot from the Dicey family in Central Otago. It is no stranger to incredible accolades having taken out the IWSC Bouchard Finlayson Trophy for their 2013 Composition Pinot Noir and the 2015 filled the top Pinot Noir spot at the prestigious Decanter World Wine Awards in the UK. With 2017 Pinot Noirs from Bannockburn gaining high praise you can be assured this is another top effort.

Ceres’ is the Central Otago brand of the Dicey family. Father Robin and sons James and Matt have had an integral involvement in many aspects of Central Otago wine since the early 1990's. The family were founding partners in Mt Difficulty with Matt being the winemaker since its inception in 1996. They know their stuff!


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Attractive and engaging bouquet of ripe red berry fruits – raspberry, plum and cherry, plenty of spice and mineral tones with a wild red rose perfume. On the palate – dry, fruity with flavours that reflect the nose – wild raspberry and plum, moderate toasty oak and oak spice layer, loads of energy, fine tannins and plenty of acidity, youthful. Drink now and through 2027."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, October 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"It is magnificently composed and delightfully expressed, showing dark cherry, plum, vanilla, warm spice and olive characters on the with a touch of floral lift. The palate is concentrated and beautifully rounded, delivering plush mouthfeel and succulent fruit intensity, leading to a persistent polished finish. At its best: now to 2022."


5 Stars & 18.5/20 (93) Raymond Chan, October 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with black hues at the heart, lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is youthfully firm with aromas of ripe dark-red and black cherry and berry fruit entwined with a layer of dark herbs and subtle whole bunch stalk elements. Some savoury floral perfumes add to the interest. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich and firm core of sweet fruit with packed, deep and dense flavours of dark-red and black cherries and berries intermingling with thyme herbs, some whole bunch stalk perfumes and a hint of reduction. The fruit richness is supported by good, grainy tannin extraction lending structure, grip and mouthfeel, and the is in the background providing freshness. The flavours carry to a long, textured finish. This is a rich and firm Pinot Noir with ripe dark-red and black berry fruits with herb and stalk complexities on a well-structured palate. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 6+ years. Bannockburn fruit, 70% from the ‘Inlet’ and 30% from the ‘Black Rabbit’ vineyards, indigenous yeast fermented with 10% whole bunches on average to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 25% new oak."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2017 Vintage)
"Weighty and supple, the 2017 vintage  is a ruby-hued, fruit-packed red, mouthfilling and youthful. Fresh and sweet-fruited, it has vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, good tannin support, and obvious potential; best drinking 2021+.​​​​​​​"


4 Stars Cuisine Pinot Noir Tasting, April 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"A fresh style with attractive floral aromas and cranberry notes. The juicy red fruits are subtle and pure, and the tightly structured palate provides an elegant tension."
