    Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it’s a horse! Sally the horse actually and she’s where the inspiration comes from for Charcoal Gully’s Sallys Pinch Pinot Noir.

    Charcoal Gully are a boutique Central Otago producer owned by Brian and Cheryll Sanders. They’ve got Matt Dicey (Mt Difficulty) overseeing the viticulture and Pete Bartle (Wooing Tree, Domain Road, Bald Hills, Grasshopper Rock and more!) – so they’re in bloody good hands.

    This 2013 release of Sallys Pinch Pinot got top marks (5 Stars) in Cuisine magazine’s 2015 Pinot tasting. It made the Top 10 NZ Pinots overall too!

    “Perennially impressive, this powerful, concentrated Pete Bartle-made wine doesn’t hold back. Intense violet, cedar and red cherry notes ring out, with impressive tannin backup vocals…Lay it down for a few years”

    How long to lay it down for you ask? Well, we reckon up until 2020-2022 should do the trick.
