2014 Two Paddocks Pinot Noir

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Two Paddocks is owned by renown actor Sam Neill, who is as enthusiastic about his wines as he is about his movies. Hailing from Central Otago, it's a plush, fruity style that shows elegant, fragrant aromas of ripe cherries and berries, along with heady rose and dried herbs, and licks of savoury meatiness. The palate is medium-bodied and bright, with a compact centre of sweet red berries and dark plums, fine-grained tannins, bright acidity, and a dry, savoury-edged finish that lingers. Should drink well over the next few years.

Winemaker's Notes

Ripe red fruit, violet, spice and some blackcurrant brooding aromatics. This wine shows a beautiful soft and rich palate with a lovely elegant drive and persistence.

Alc/vol: 13.5%

2014 Two Paddocks Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Bob Campbell MW (2014 Vintage) says
Bright, dense and flavoursome Pinot Noir with cherry, raspberry, mineral, floral, violet and spicy oak flavours. High energy wine with impressive purity and length. Should age well.

Wine Spectator (2015 Vintage) says
Complex and intriguing, with fresh raspberry, cherry and tangerine flavours. Sleek and polished, showing plenty of traction from the tannins. Sophisticated and aromatic.
Drink now through 2030.

Wine Advocate (2015 Vintage) says
Pale ruby coloured with a hint of purple, the 2015 Pinot Noir has an evocative nose of cranberries and red currants with nuances of garrigue, wild thyme, underbrush and mossy bark. The palate is elegantly constructed with a light body and soft, fine-grained tannins supporting the lively fruit and finishing long.

James Suckling (2013 Vintage) says
Intense bright purple cherry fruits, plums, lots and lots of strawberries and raspberries and some maraschino; there is such depth on the nose. The palate has beautifully soft and supple tannins that sit smooth and even. This is flavorsome, tidy and balanced.
