It would be hard to find a Pinot Noir anywhere in New Zealand that can match this on value. The Crater Rim Waipara Pinot Noir is our biggest selling Pinot Noir, going out by the case load for many and the 'budget' addition to plenty of fine Pinot Noir selections. This wine may be skimping on price but not skimping on quality. It really is a bargain!


Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"The Crater Rim Waipara Pinot Noir fruit was sourced from our estate vineyard in the Waipara Valley. The vines were low cropped and sustainably managed to provide fruit of great flavour depth, structure and integrity.

The fruit was fermented in small open top vats, using natural yeasts followed by 13 months maturation on lees in new and seasoned French oak barriques. After barrel maturation, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

Aromas of red cherry, earth and spice are balanced with a generous round mouth feel. The finish on the palate shows hints of spice with a fine ripe tannin structure."


5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2019 (2016 Vintage)
"Complex and engaging, the gorgeously expressed bouquet shows sweet strawberry, spiced cherry, game, almond and mushroom characters. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent weight and roundness, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and fine tannins. Flavoursome and lingering with lovely savoury nuances. At its best: now to 2021."

18.5/20 Joelle Thompson, DrinksBiz Magazine, April 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"If The Crater Rim hasn’t made it onto your radar yet, then this is the perfect place to start: a wow factor, Waipara Valley Pinot Noir at an incredibly accessible price. The Waipara Valley is the heart and soul of the North Canterbury wine region and Pinot Noir is the great red of this vastly underrated area, thanks to winemakers such as Hayden Good at The Crater Rim, who crafted this beautifully balanced, food-friendly red. It is medium-bodied, dry and fresh with a gorgeous combination of bright, sweet fruit and a savoury finish. It’s drinking extremely nicely now and can age for up to five years."
