Vintages Escape Paddocks

Mark announces today the balloon will go up August 1st for the release of our top tier First Paddock Pinot Noir 2006. This release, it has to be said, has been sneakily pre-empted by one or two insider Oenophiles, who have proclaimed it probably the greatest pinot we have produced to date.

Try for yourselves, but readers of this blog might be well advised to secure their own supply early because demand will almost certainly resemble a stampede à la Pamplona. Do not get trampled in the rush.

The other bottle pictured is our Two Paddocks Pinot Noir 2006. There are those among us who consider it marginally better than the First Paddock, but this is controversial. No blows or dustups to date although this is always possible. Release is early next year.

The third tier of course, is our legendary Picnic Pinot Noir 2006 (not pictured). The Proprietor and his friend Brian Brown (the thespian, not the sheep) got larruped on this in Arrowtown this week, to the satisfaction of all. Well, to the satisfaction of themselves — other patrons, family and restaurateurs alike — faintly appalled.
