Winery notes (2019 Vintage)
"Deep ruby in colour with a layered bouquet of red berries, floral and savoury notes. Rich and opulent on the palate with dark cherry, plum and spice. Elegant yet mouth filling with an impressive purity and power. 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 28th March and 8th April. 10% 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; 21 days. Drained directly into selected French oak barriques (20% new, 40% 1 year old, 20% 2 years old and 20% 3 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, January 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Single Ferment is the wine that best expresses both site and season. Richer and more intense than the regular pinot noir, with a complex mix of dark cherry, berry, floral and savoury flavours. The wine will obviously develop well with bottle age but is still quite accessible."

Rated Outstanding & 96/100 Cameron Douglas MS, June 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Wonderful purity, complexity and vibrato in the bouquet with aromas of sweet ripe black cherry and Otago raspberries, a core of minerality with floral highlights, some new wood scents offering smoke and spice. Youthful, tense and poised on the palate with a core of pinosity, dark red berry fruit flavours, firm chalky tannins and plenty of acidity. Flavour mirror the bouquet leading to a lengthy, tense and complex finish. A wine for the cellar still with best drinking from late 2022 through 2030+."

95/100 Joe Czerwinski, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, June 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"The 2019 Bendigo Estate Single Ferment Pinot Noir—nicknamed Black Ops—is indeed a darker shade of ruby than the regular bottling. Just the merest hint of cedar appears on the nose, accenting notes of black cherries, plums and some earthy, spicy, cola-like notes. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated and bold, this expansive, generous wine is framed by silky tannins and bright acids, which prolong the mouthwatering finish. It's a terrific effort from one of the region's acknowledged masters—owner/winemaker Rudi Bauer."

Rated Excellent, 5 Stars & 94/100 NZ Wine Rater, September 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Pronounced, lifted, confected, bouquet with heady notes of violets, and pure ethereal, dark fruit, redolent of cold-soak pre-fermentation. A juicy, soft, rounded, textural wine with plenty of flesh on its bones, flavours of black cherry, and fine, gentle, spicy tannins. An engaging wine that is sure to have wide appeal."

5 Stars Michael Cooper (2019 Vintage)
"Certified organic and biodynamic, this wine is 'a single ferment… personally selected by Rudi Bauer as it best expresses the Bendigo Estate vineyard' in Central Otago. Hand-harvested, it is matured in French oak casks, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The very generous 2020 vintage is arguably the best yet. Deep, bright ruby, with a fragrant, complex bouquet, it is mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with rich, beautifully ripe flavours, a hint of liquorice, and a savoury, smooth finish. Already delicious, it should be at its peak 2024+."

  • Relatively new to wine and liquor, but I have found the experience of trying new wines and liquor enjoying with the help from the staff at Vino Fino. Very friendly and tolerant of my basic questions!

    Amazing customer service. Vino Fino arranged a gift wrapped, hand delivered, chilled bottle of champagne for the morning of my best friends wedding, as I was stuck in the UK with COVID. A beautiful gift. It was like nothing was too much trouble for them. I was even able to dictate a small message. Thank you for your excellent service!

  • Great range of wines.You will find some not so common grape varieties are available here. They appear to be competitively priced. Service was excellent. The shop is split over three levels. Not sure how you'd cope if you are mobility impaired.

  • 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

    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.
