McArthur Ridge vineyards are sited on an elevated plateau, planted across a set of gentle northern slopes to capture maximum warmth.

Set at altitude, the Alexandra basin is the southernmost Pinot Noir producing area in the world, the cool climate [-12.5 degrees], infertile soils and hot [42 degrees] but short-lived summers of Central Otago provide a pristine environment for winegrowing, especially Pinot Noir. 

Beautiful floral notes, aromatic and complex, showing ripe cherry, oak spice, and mocha notes on the nose. The palate is succulent with rich red berry notes, violets, oregano herbal nuances and fine tannins. The wine is supported by fine acidity and finishes with a long and balanced persistency…”so pretty.” Winery
