Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
“We grow our premium Two Paddocks Pinot Noir entirely on our four small Vineyards in Central Otago. In some exceptional vintages, listening carefully, we realise that one of these may have something extraordinary to say in its own right. It is only then that we will make one of these very rare single vineyard wines.

The Last Chance is a beautifully sited small terrace perched in bright clear air above the Earnscleugh Valley, carefully planted with well-tended Burgundian clone pinot noir. It nestles amongst a small cluster of the World’s most southerly vineyards and takes its name from the watercourse that runs through its heart, hand dug by gold miners in the 1860s, The Last Chance."


93/100 MaryAnn Worobiec, Wine Spectator, December 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Complex and intense, with clove, dried orange peel and vanilla bean accents adding a warm, smooth vibe to the core of dried cherry, wild strawberry and raspberry fruit. Spicy tobacco, cigar box and dried earth aromas linger on the finish, which goes on and on. Drink now through 2030."
91/100​ Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, February 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Arguably the world's southernmost vineyard, Two Paddocks' 2016 The Last Chance Pinot Noir is a bit firm and taut. Herbal-stemmy notes (it's 50% whole cluster this vintage) accent cherry aromas, while the flavours turn darker on the palate, heading toward charred oak, blackberry and plum. Give this one a bit of time to pull itself together and drink it from 2020."
