Skeleton Creek was the site of a gold diggers’ stopover on the pack track traversing the Pisa Range from Lowburn Ferry to Cardrona in Central Otago, in the late 1800s.

“An elegant pinot showing perfumed aromas of red cherry, plum, floral and subtle spice notes. The palate is succulent and rounded with fine texture and lovely mid palate weight, finishing long and juicy. A youthful charmer showing refinement and poise. At its best: now to 2016. Moderate availability.” Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Winery Tasting Notes
Lowburn Ferry Skeleton Creek Pinot Noir 2011 has perfumed red fruit on the nose with hints of spice, leather and tobacco.
Sweet cherry and plum on the palate complement leather and savoury notes. This is a lovely medium bodied wine with fine grained tannins and some minerality on the long graceful finish.
Enjoy on its own, or with chicken, duck, lamb, and venison dishes.
This wine will continue to develop depth and complexity for 5-7 years.
