The 2011 season was challenging in Central Otago with unsettled weather throughout January and February. Strong flowering and fruit set coupled with warm spring conditions resulted in vigorous canopy and bunch development with larger than average berries. With March came settled conditions which continued through picking. Careful vineyard management and picking decisions resulted in sound fruit with great fruit expression on arrival into the winery.

Winery Tasting Notes


Bright cherry red with violet hues


Lifted cherry and blueberry notes with dried spice and earthy undertones.


Generous palate opens with luscious cherry fruit leading into a spiced core of blueberry, thyme and earthy notes. Fine acidity and elegant silky tannins knit together the mid palate providing structure and supporting a long fruit driven finish.


Drinking well now and will continue to do so until 2017

Winery Profile

With a circular shape suggesting perpetual movement, the koru's inward coil also implies a return to the point of origin. In a more abstract sense, the koru symbolises the way in which life both changes and stays the same.

True to the meaning of the word essence, this range of wines reflects the heart and soul of what consumers around the world have long known: the most pure expression of New Zealand is found in its wines. Crafted by a winemaker with an innate knowledge and sense of the New Zealand terroir, the essenze range includes a Central Otago Pinot Noir, Waipara Pinot Gris and Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc.
