Overview

I believe 2012 will be a hallmark year for Marlborough Pinot Noir – a year where the wines made themselves. Crops were very light (as low as 2T/Ha in some vineyards) but the quality was exceptional with terrific flavour and structure, moderate berry sugar levels. As always with Crowded House Pinot Noir, the fruit and wine were very gently handled in order to preserve the delicate and alluring fruit characters for which Pinot Noir is renowned, whilst making it approachable and enjoyable as a young wine.

I hope you find as much pleasure in drinking this wine as I had in crafting it.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Crowded House is to me, a cheeky, younger sibling of Catalina Sounds. These are fresh, easy drinking, unpretentious wines with clean, crisp aromatics.

Crowded House is not a second label by any stretch. These wines are just a different style, perfect for parties but still using the best quality fruit, over-delivering at their price point on quality in a 'crowded world of Marlborough wines.'
