Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

The nose features spiced dark stone fruit. Spice, bramble, blackcurrant and plum follow on the palate with a spiced dark cherry finish.

Food Matching

Superb with any red meat or pasta dish.

Winemaking Note

Our Pinot Noir grapes come from a single vineyard in the Gibbston area of Central Otago. The vineyard features

layers of loess interspersed with river gravels, over a layer of schist. A cooler region than the rest of the Central Otago region enables long ripening periods that enhance the build-up of colour and flavour.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Peter Fredatovich set sail from his homeland in Croatia on the shores of the Adriatic to discover a new and prosperous life in a distant land.

In New Zealand he found a land rich with promise and vast opportunities.Arriving in Auckland in 1922 with few possessions, Petar worked in the Kauri tree gum fields and as a stone mason to save for a deposit on a block of land west of the city at the foothills of the Waitakere Ranges. Petar cleared his land by hand and planted vines. Barrels were hand-made from local native Totara trees to ferment his wine.

In 1937 he established his winery.The winery was eventually passed to his son, Peter D Fredatovich, who planted more vineyards and expanded the winery. Peter's efforts saw him awarded an MBE (Member of the British Empire) in 1989 for services to New Zealand wine. Peter D Fredatovich is recognised as one of the pioneers of the modern New Zealand wine industry.

In 1988 current Managing Director Peter M Fredatovich took over the management of the business from his father.

Distant land Vintners is proud to remain family owned and operated by the third and fourth generation Peter Fredatovich 70 years after the establishment of their winery.
