Wild Earth Pinot Noir 2019
- Textured, savoury
- Central Otago
Wild Earth are a solid mofo favourite and absolute darlings of the wine press too. They craft exceptional wines year after year and 2019 is no exception. From a ripping Bannockburn single site in Central Otago, this wine has everything: elegance, grace, poise, power. There is a seductive bouquet of black fruits on the nose, with a touch of the tertiary mushroom complexity. Expect dark cherry, plum and thyme on the plate, this has it all in check, composed and confident. Whether you’re looking to impress at a dinner party next week or hide a few bottles away - this is the pinot for the job.

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.
“It's wonderfully ripe and elegantly perfumed on the nose showing sweet cherry, violet, cedar and warm spice aromas on the nose. The palate is equally satisfying, displaying excellent weight and intensity, together with refined mouthfeel and silky texture, leading to an impressively long velvety finish.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

- Serving Temp.
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.
