Carrick Unravelled is our early drinking offering for Pinot Noir lovers. it’s essentially a declassification of wine from the Carrick vineyards, so has all the care and attention of the other Pinots, but bottled earlier with less new oak.
The Unravelled Pinot Noir is a premium wine made from predominantly Dijon clones on various rootstocks. This half of the Carrick vineyard is 100% Pinot Noir, planted in 1996 and is colloquially named “Le Chat”.
Unravelled Pinot Noir shows dark fruits and spice on the nose. This wine has lovely flow and entry onto the palate with dark cherry, blackcurrants and the unmistakable tannin structure that can only come from the Cairnmuir Terraces of Bannockburn where the winery and vineyard are situated.
This is a certified organic, single vineyard, Central Otago Pinot Noir that is light
bodied and finely structured. We enjoy this as our day to day dinner wine.
