Those who follow the brand know that we do not enter our wine into competitions. We do however love a good review, and we are BASKING in this one.
In the July 2008 Decanter Magazine (U.K.) our Two Paddocks, First Paddocks Pinot Noir 2006 is listed under New World Greats to Lay Down. -- 40 superstars to add flair to your cellar.
On this list, we are one of only three N.Z. wines to be listed. The only other Pinot is Neudorf Pinot 2005 (salutate Tim and Judy Finn).
Our listing reads as follows, by Serena Sutcliffe M.W., Head of Sotheby’s international wine department.
“Great wine to satisfy the most ardent of Pinot fusspots (count me in), this rarely produced wine is special and has a few splendid drinking years ahead.”
Superstar indeed. The Proprietor is positively gloating. Good God!
