Lowburn Ferry is a small, family-owned winery with the vineyards in a sheltered north facing terrace in the Lowburn Valley beneath the Pisa Range in Central Otago. These vineyards started out as glacial terraces and prior to 2000 were in pasture. They now provide healthy soils and are part of a unique terroir ideal for the production of some of New Zealand’s finest Pinot Noir. Lowburn Ferry is named after the area surrounding an historic ferry crossing over the Clutha River.

Scented, spicy Pinot Noir with succulent plum and cherry flavours seasoned with a subtle savoury character. Silken textured red with a lingering finish. Deliciously accessible but with good cellaring potential. Bob Campbell MW, Rating 93
Winery Tasting Notes
Purple in colour with purple hues.
On the nose it exhibits vibrant dark cherry fruit with violets, mocha and hints of smoky char and savoury notes.
It shows concentrated, sweet black and red cherry on the palate with some coffee, spice and leather characters. A medium bodied, complex wine, showing ample fine grained tannin and good persistence on the finish.
