Overview

Nanny Goat Vineyard is named after the wild goats that roam the mountainous terrain of the Central Otago.

The name came about somewhat serendipitously in late 2004 during a trek to a restaurant, nestled high above the picturesque town of Queenstown, for some breath taking scenery, good food and of course some great Central Otago Pinot Noir.

What was supposed to be a gentle, relaxing stroll quickly became quite an ordeal with an unplanned deviation from the not so well defined walking ‘track’. This was to be the catalyst for the naming of Nanny Goat Vineyard, as the gentle terrain quickly transformed, leaving all concerned to navigate some rather perilous terrain – much like the wild “Nanny Goats” often found nimbly navigating the rugged landscape of the region.

The name “Nanny Goat Vineyard” stuck, as it seemed to be a fair reflection of our determination to succeed, adapt and thrive in the rugged and often extreme climates of Central Otago – much like the nimble and sure footed wild goats of the region have done before us.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Deep ruby with a youthful purple hue on the rim.

Aroma

Initially dark and brooding, you are greeted on the nose with notes of bramble and spice, quickly opening up to reveal dark berry fruits, sour cherry, freshly tanned leather and subtle charry oak.

Palate

The entry to the palate is rich, with sweet berry fruits nicely balanced by mouth-watering juicy acidity. Firm but fine tannins frame the mid palate, with suggestions of cherry cola and dried herbs falling away to give a lingering finish of fresh forrest berries and cream.

Food Matching

Braised goat shoulder with creamy polenta.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

At latitude 45 degrees south, New Zealand’s Central Otago is the southernmost wine region in the world. Alpine mountains to the west, rocky ranges to the south and dry tussock covered hills to the east dominate the landscape. In between all of this grandness, on the lush valley floors, are nestled the Nanny Goat vineyards. This is a region of climatic extremes with typically very hot summers, short autumns and bitterly cold days in winter. The soils are rocky with poor fertility. All of these conditions are perfect for producing world-class Pinot Noir.
