What ex­cites you most about Cen­tral Otago right now?

Cen­tral Otago is evolv­ing. Vine age is de­vel­op­ing and along­side that is a more con­sid­ered style of wine­mak­ing. Cen­tral Otago used to have the rep­u­ta­tion of pro­duc­ing big, brash, fruit-bomb pinot, but with age comes re­fine­ment.

The re­gion’s wine­mak­ers are lead­ing the charge, pro­duc­ing wines that show greater nu­ance and el­e­gance.

What do you be­lieve sets your win­ery apart?

Our fo­cus is pinot noir. We pro­duce three in­di­vid­ual ex­pres­sions of Cen­tral Otago’s hall­mark va­ri­etal: Nanny Goat Vine­yard, an ap­proach­able re­gional blend en­com­pass­ing many vine­yards, in­di­vid­ual blocks and clones; Su­per Nanny, our vine­yard se­lec­tion of only the best parcels of fruit; and Bas­ket Case, a small-batch wine that delves into the deeper con­nec­tion be­tween wine­maker and metic­u­lous, hands-on wine­mak­ing tech­niques.
