Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Sourcing fruit from 6 distinct blocks that vary in age from 10 - 30+ years, Shaky Bridge Wines owns one of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Central Otago. The various locations, soil types and clones used within each block provide our winemaker, Dave Grant, with a virtual painters palate of flavours to create multi dimensional wines of exceptional quality, depth and satisfaction.

We de-stemmed and lightly crushed high quality Pinot Noir grapes from 3 different source blocks into stainless steel tanks for a cold soak period of 7 days. Primary fermentation took place at warm temperatures, and we pumped-over several times a day to achieve maximum colour and flavour extraction. Malolactic took place in a mixture of old and newer French Oak barrels, with a maturation period of 10 months in barrel. We cold stabilized and lightly filtered the wine before bottling."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"This is beautifully ripe and inviting on the nose showing dark cherry, plum, toasted hazelnut and subtle game characters. The palate is concentrated and silky, and delivers excellent fruit richness and intensity, wonderfully framed by polished tannins. The wine is expressive and generous, while remaining balanced and structured. At its best: now to 2020"
5 Stars Winestate Tasting September / October 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Very deep colour. Fruit sits firmly in the darker spectrum; black cherry, damson. Exotic, opulent silky style with plenty in reserve. Too young – one judge described it as 'brooding” but plenty of potential"
