This wine has been specifically made to be more approachable,while still young and fresh. During the fermentation process great care was taken with temperature control to ensure only lighter smoother tannins were extracted from the skins.

Likewise the wine was only stored in French oak barrels for 8 months rather than the usual 12 to ensure the oak flavours in the wine were not overpowering. These measures have combined to create a very smooth elegant Pinot Noir.

Winery Tasting Notes


Ricy ruby.


Another rich ruby red vintage with silky tannins, good length and a generous aftertaste. It is a medium bodied wine with hints of delicious savoury oak and just a touch of spice. A very approachable Pinot Noir with sweet spicy aromas.

Winery Profile

Hinton Estate was established by the family that has grown premium stonefuit in Central Otago for over 100 years. The first vines were planted in the late 1990’s and Howie Hinton, a fifth generation orchardist, is the viticulturist and winemaker. The vineyard was established on steep north facing slopes where the terrain is too tough for summer fruit yet ideal for grapes, especially pinot noir and aromatic white varieties. The winemaking philosophy matches that of the family’s fruit operation, where only perfect fruit is accepted. The ethos is based on growing quality grapes and enhancing natural flavours through utilisation of simple, traditional winemaking techniques and the best technical innovation.
