Peregrine Pinot Noir

First class, high flyer!

Peregrine Pinot Noir

2016, Central Otago New Zealand
  • 5 Stars (Michael Cooper MW) - "Outstanding in top seasons"
  • Named after the endangered NZ falcon (the Kareara) - it's the bird you'll find on the back of a twenty dollar bill
  • Drink over the next 3-5 years with game meat dishes
  • RRP $45


    These guys are as passionate about producing world class Pinot as they are about protecting the native bird species they’ve named them after. Since their first vintage in 1998 the awards have flown through the door. Not literally, although the impressive Peregrine winery building (which has also won awards) is shaped like the wingspan of a falcon in flight.

    The Peregrine (or Kareara) is probably more famous than you realise – check the back of a twenty dollar bill and you’ll see the mug of one of these endangered NZ falcons.

    A classy, complex Central Otago drop that never fails to impress. Drink it over the next 3-5 years and enjoy with duck, venison and beef fillet dishes.

    The Lowdown: 13.5% alc / 750ml / Screwcap
