Wild Earth Pinot Noir 2018
- Textured, savoury
- Central Otago
The name Wild Earth came to prominence as a quality pinot back in 2008, when trophies were being awarded to them for their 2006 vintage, and every future pinot they’ve made has enjoyed trophies, golds, points and absolute smashability. From a ripping Bannockburn single site, it just has everything: elegance, grace, poise, power. A seductive bouquet of black fruits and a touch of earthy complexity. Expect dark cherry, plum and thyme on the palate. This has it all in check, composed and confident.

Winemaker: Jen Parr
Jen has managed the not-to-be-sniffed-at feat of completing 28 vintages in 16 years, by dividing her time between Northern and Southern hemispheres and working tirelessly to perfect her craft. She was recognised by Gourmet Wine Traveller magazine as New Zealand winemaker of the year in 2019.
“Offering gorgeous fruit purity together with seductive spicy nuances, the wine shows dark cherry, plum, vanilla, thyme, anise and roasted nut aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is silky-smooth and wonderfully flowing. It is beautifully harmonious and persistent with a multi-layered mouthfeel.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Central Otago is the New Zealand's highest and the world's most southerly wine region at latitude 45°S. It has cold winters, hot summers, cool nights and low rainfall, and is ideally suited to Pinot Noir, which covers 80% of plantings. The rest is mainly planted to Chardonnay, with smatterings of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris. Expect character and intensity as the hallmarks of this marginal region.
