Gold Medal – New Zealand International Wine Show 2019
Gold Medal & 95/100 – Premium Selection New World Wine Awards 2019


Wild Earth have produced some seriously good wines over the years, winning a cupboard full of Trophies and medals from around the world. With star winemaker Jen Parr heading the winemaking team and seriously good fruit from the golden sub-region of Bannockburn this is simply too good to miss out on. Enjoy now or put some away as it will easily cellar for another 8 years or so.


Winery notes (2017 Vintage)
"Deep garnet colour with intense aromas of cherry, blackberry, cedar, wild thyme, mushroom and earthy loam. The cooler 2017 vintage has delivered a wine with tremendous concentration and a remarkable core with layers of dark red fruit wild herb and distinctive earthy flavours complementing a richly textured palate. Silky fine tannins, vibrant fruit and intense aromas complement a serious structure with so much finesse. Harmonious and rich, this Pinot is drinking beautifully as a young wine and should continue to deliver enjoyment for 12+ years."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"It is fabulously fruited and gorgeously expressed on the nose showing dark cherry, sweet plum, floral, vanilla and roasted nut characters with a touch of mushroom complexity. The palate is wonderfully weighted and supple, delivering layers of fine texture and delectable flavours, superbly structured by fine, polished tannins. At its best: now to 2024."


95/100 NWWA 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Commercial diver and lover of Central Otago, Quintin Quider was initially drawn to Stewart Island from his native Southern California. It was challenge of winemaking that took him the final step from Stewart Island to Bannockburn’s Felton Road and the establishment of Wild Earth Wines. Their first vintage was in 2004, but it wasn't until 2008 that the name Wild Earth started to resonate as a quality Pinot Noir to watch, winning trophies for their 2006 Pinot Noir. The bouquet is very seductive with black fruit, thyme, elegant cedar oak and subtle mushroom complexity. Velvety with concentration and layers of dark fruit flavour, the tannins are fine, supple and silky with a long persistent finish. A great wine for any occasion, especially one that involves friends, family and food."


5 Stars Winestate Magazine, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Delicious now, but also ageworthy, this is a single-vineyard, Bannockburn red, hand-picked and matured for a year in French oak (27% new). Full, bright ruby, it is a powerful, young, sweet-fruited and savoury, with a fragrant, slightly earthy bouquet and fresh, deep cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, combining charm and complexity."


94/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, June 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"A single vineyard wine from the Bannockburn subregion. A pleasing and quite complex mix of cherry and plum with fresh herb, violet and wild thyme characters. A bright, elegant, moderately concentrated pinot noir with a slightly rustic edge."


93/100 Cameron Douglas MS, October 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"Dark red berry fruits, toasty wood spices, dark rosé and crushed rock mineral core. Dry on the palate with medium weight, firm, ripe tannins and medium+ acidity. A lovely core of fruit with a great sense of pinosity, power and finish. Still developing though drinkable now and through 2025."


IWSC 2019 (2017 Vintage)
"A bright cherry colour, with a vibrant raspberry nose that has hints of peanut butter. The palate has a lovely structure and good balance. Very delicious, characteristic and characterful."
