Established in 1998, Wild Earth Wines owns 35 hectares of vineyards in two of Central Otago’s finest locations – at the end of Felton Road overlooking the Kawarau River and in the North Lowburn district beneath the imposing Pisa Range.
Most of the grapes for this wine came from the Terraces Vineyards in Felton Road (Bannockburn) and the rest from Wild Earth’s Lowburn Vineyard.
The hand-picked fruit was de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks to undergo a period of cold soak before being inoculated with selected yeasts to carry out the fermentation. The wine was aged in French oak barriques, of which a third was new oak, for approximately 12 months.
Wild Earth Pinot Noir 2014 has a deep purple colour. On the nose it is perfumed with dark cherry and plum aromas together with violets and savoury notes of leather, mushroom and smoke. Medium-full bodied, the palate is full, even and accessible. Flavours of dark cherry and berry fruit shine though while the fine-grained tannins and well-integrated acidity give character and structure to the wine.
