Winery notes (2018 Vintage)
"Ruby-red in colour accompanied by notes of raspberry and spice. Rich and elegant on the palate with ripe plum, cherry and cinnamon. Medium bodied with velvet tannins integrated acidity and a long finish. Very good ageing potential.

From our pioneer Bendigo Estate vineyard. BioGro certified organic and Demeter certified biodynamic; with a vine density of 5,000 – 8,000 plants per hectare on grafted pinot noir clones, planted in 1998. Hand-picked on the 12th March. 12.5% whole bunch. Cold soaked for 7 days before indigenous yeast fermentation kicked in. Gentle hand plunging throughout ferment, followed by post-fermentation maceration of 6 days to ensure optimum fruit and tannin balance. Total time on skin; 24 days. Drained directly into selected French oak barriques (33% new, 33% 1 year old and 33% 2 years old) where the wine aged for 15 months during which natural malolactic fermentation occured. Bottled without fining and filtration."


5 Stars & 96/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, May 2020 (2018 Vintage)
"Intense yet elegant pinot noir with black cherry, dark berry, violet and spicy oak flavours. A seamless wine with impressive purity and power. While it can be appreciated now, it promises to deliver more with bottle age thanks to a structure of fine tannins."


5 Stars Michael Cooper (2018 Vintage)
"Certified organic and biodynamic, the powerful 2018 vintage is 'a single ferment' personally selected by Rudi Bauer as it best expresses the Bendigo Estate vineyard' in Central Otago. Estate-grown and hand-harvested, it was matured for 15 months in French oak casks, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep ruby, it is an authoritative, concentrated, well-structured red, with obvious potential. Mouthfilling, it has deep, ripe plum, spice and nut flavours, good tannin backbone, notable complexity, and a lasting finish. Best drinking 2023+."

95/100 Jamie Goode, Febraury 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Concentrated and broad with nice sweet black cherry and blackberry fruit with depth and intensity. Very assured with lovely texture and some savoury notes. There are some hints of oak, but they are fully integrated. A refined wine."

    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!
