Selected for the 2020 Fine Wines of New Zealand List


One of New Zealand's finest Pinot Noirs, wrapped up and looking a million dollars ready for the Duty Free Market… it was a great plan, but the timing atrocious…

We are one of only two outlets in NZ chosen to offer this exclusive wine at a seriously discounted price to our customers. This is without doubt an excellent Central Otago Pinot Noir, made even more impressive with its beautiful label and if you are gifting this, we can provide an equally impressive gift box.


*Please note: Due to size and weight of these bottles our usual freight rates, $8.00 South Island, $9.00 North Island, will apply per case of six bottles for orders outside of Christchurch. We will contact you if applicable.


*Gift boxes available, please let us know if you would like them to be included with your order. Pick ups and local Christchurch deliveries only, we cannot courier gift boxes.


Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Our Home Block sits beneath the magnificent Pisa Range in one of Central Otago’s most unique vineyard parcels. The rich soil derived from sensitive human cultivation over more than 150 years produces distinct characteristics in our wines, which are expressed through natural viticulture and winemaking techniques. These soils and the sheltered location help to create exceptional wines that have balance, harmony, complexity and depth of character.

Medium dark purple with pink hues. Dark black fruit, redcurrants, violets, oak char, leather and spice. Full bodied with sweet black plum and red cherries. Silky fine grained tannins with layers of complexity and juicy acidity. The finish is long with red fruit and toasty oak."


Reviews for the 2017 vintage below…


5 Stars & Number 1 Cuisine Pinot Noir Tasting, May 2020 
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, June 2020 

(watch the review video here)


95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2019 (2017 Vintage) 
"A captivating, youthful, fresh, fruity and gently savoury bouquet of Pinot Noir. Wild thyme, dark cherry, dried raspberry and black cherry aromas, dark spices of wood and wild forest flowers. Dry on the palate with chalky tannins, plenty of acidity and wood layers, tempered by a core of fruit and lengthy finish. Very youthful still needing cellar thyme. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2025+."


4 ½ Stars, Yvonne Lorkin, February 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"Grown on land that was farmed for over 160 years meant these grapes benefitted from soils rich in organic matter and good old dirt development – very unusual for the mostly glacial, loess soils of Central Otago. The grapes are packed with flavour, flirtiness and spice saturation, all things that unveil red fruits, luscious, savoury textures and a rich yet silky profile on the finish. The acidity has lovely structure which binds the soft, elastic tannins and elongates its presence on the palate. Lovely stuff."


5 Stars & Number 1 Cuisine Pinot Noir Tasting, May 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"It has a deep colour with both red and dark fruit aromas presenting themselves alongside thyme and spice proudly on the nose. Then, upon the palate you encounter long, sensuous, juicy yet relaxed fruit flavours with good chalky tannins and spice, completing with a long, almost sweet, finish. A polished and well-crafted style of pinot noir, agreed by all to be a very smart example indeed."


5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2017 Vintage)
"Offering sweet fruit richness with refinement, the wine shows dark cherry, raspberry and vanillin oak characters on the nose with dried herb and mixed spice nuances. The palate displays excellent depth and intensity, together with plush mouthfeel and silky tannins, leading to a gorgeously long delicious finish. At its best: now to 2027."

    5 star review  I am overseas and ordered 6 bottles of wine for a gift. The wine selection on offer was very impressive and at great prices. The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.

  • 5 star review  Not only do they sell delicious wine at great prices, but the owners of the store couldn't be more lovely. We had to cancel our wedding twice due to covid-19 and they have been amazing in helping us return and sell our alcohol. They have gone above and beyond. Highly recommend.

  • 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.
