1. 2013 Hawkshead First Vines Pinot Noir: Nestled in the “Valley Of Vines” in the heart of Gibbston, ‘13 was a classic vintage. Crushed rock, richly spiced plums and tension through the roof.

Denis and Ulrike have a deep and loving involvement with the land. It really shines through in this wine crafted solely from their initial plantings in Central Otago.
