Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Our Estate Pinot Noir is the mainstay of our Pinot Noir range. Stylistically it's a nod towards Old Europe, with more reserve, layers and complexity than typical New Zealand pinots. A wine of delicate proportions and nuance, it's more about restraint than power. A sleek and elegant texture yields to flavours more floral and earth-driven than fruit-heavy.

Our Estate Pinot Noir is blended from eight different vine types, most of which are grown on our hillside block on ungrafted roots. These vines are younger, newer clones than our Slowhand and Hare's Breath, although in some years we include a bit of Slowhand or Hare's Breath fruit into the blend.

Deep red cherry in colour with a dark savoury nose of ripe cherry and herbs. Palate shows considerable power and earthy character with masses of plum, dark berry and a mineral cherry edge. Robust fruit tannin provides an inner strength that is long and alluring."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"The 2018 vintage was matured for 14 months in French oak barriques (39 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Ruby-hued, it is a floral, supple, youthful red, with complex, savoury, nutty flavours and a lengthy, harmonious finish. Best drinking 2022+. Certified organic."


Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, August 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"There’s no mistaking the youthful energy in the bouquet – aromas of ripe dark red cherries and plums then numerous wild berries and dried herb savoury scents. There’s an abundance of oak aroma as well with dark spices and new toasty wood aromas. On the palate too these fruit and wood ideas turn into intensity and freshness then flavours that reflect the nose. Firm tannins and plenty of acidity, warming alcohol and a core of energy. A rather young wine still needing some cellar time to really settle in and begin to evolve. Lengthy finish and needing food if you open before 2022. Best drinking from later in 2022 through 2028+."

93/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, August 2020 (2017 Vintage)
"Bold pinot noir of deep flavour and spicy, twiggy-toasty-cedary characters meshed to dark cherry, brooding blackberry and violet floral notes. A good swish of flinty tannin announces itself early takes control of the wine, finishing lightly bitter and a little puckering. Shape, structure, seriousness. A wine of pedigree and depth with oak a calling card at a level perhaps a bit too much for me (only 30% new, I believe, but it shows), but will please many. For those seeking some direct action from pinot noir, power and finesse perhaps."

  • 5 star review  I've just ordered online for a friend in another city and I was impressed with the ease of use on the website. Wines are listed with excellent information on tasting notes and professional reviews, as well as being well categorised for easy search. I also called the store with a query about ordering online and they were so incredibly helpful and friendly on the phone. Highly recommend

    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!

  • 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.
