Takapoto Estate will be a new name for most of you but the man behind the label, Andy Anderson, may be more familiar. A local lad and ex-Vino Fino staffer now based at Karipiro and making some fantastic Pinot Noir at Invivo's facility in Te Kauwhata.

His 2012 Takapoto Estate Single Vineyard Bannockburn Pinot Noir picked up the overall Pinot Noir Trophy at London's very large and very prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2017. Most years he makes two single vineyard wines, one from Gibbston and one from Bannockburn in Central Otago but the 2013 vintage did not yield enough fruit for two separate wines so he blended the two to make this wine. It's not the Trophy winning 2012 but it carries the same hallmarks of beautiful aromatics and silken texture.
Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"A beautiful blend from renown vineyards Legends Terrace, Bannockburn and Coxes Vineyard, Gibbston Valley. These handpicked grapes were delicately vinified before spending 14 months in French oak barrels. The wine was bottled unfined and unfiltered to preserve its purity of flavour. A subtle nose of jasmine & lilac. On the palate, sweet red & dark fruits complimented by a spicy oak finish with smooth, silky tannins."
