Winemaker's Notes

The Amen Break Pinot Noir has a wonderful dense deep red colour. Aromatics of red plum, black cherry and bunch-derived Campari are pure and intense. The palate is a revelation- dense but bright, concentrated and with space. Pure Pinot Noir flavours are wrapped in fine filigreed tannins, which are layered and add many levels of complexity. A vibrant,vineyard derived wine, free of winemaking artifact and rich in authenticity.

Expert Reviews

Campbell Mattinson (2014 Vintage) says

The Wild Earth vineyard is on Felton Road in the Bannockburn sub-region of Central Otago. We all now know what the Amen Break is. The wine is made by the Clonal Brothers – Steve and Matt Harrop.

Deep pinot noir. Spice notes sunk into a deep pool of macerated red and black cherry, almost or effectively into plum. Fragrant green herb and roasted nut characters put on a complex display, though nothing juts, nothing ever gets too distracting. Starts solid and then gets better and more interesting/engaging as it breathes. Can’t complain over either the quality or the price.

Huon Hooke (2014 Vintage) says

Deepish red colour with a faint tint of purple remaining, the bouquet very ripe, fruit-driven and liqueur-cherry-like. There are chinotto or Campari-like whole-bunch nuances too. The wine is medium to full-bodied and quite chunky, with ample firm tannins and bold flavours. The wine is solid and deep and needs time to mellow and build complexity. The building blocks are certainly there. It's like a big block of stone from which the sculptor, time, has yet to finish carving the figure. For lovers of big pinots.
