2017 The Last Chance Pinot Noir

About the wine

The most Southern vineyard in the Antipodes.


 “We grow our premium Two Paddocks Pinot Noir entirely on our four small vineyards in Central Otago. In some exceptional vintages, listening carefully, we realize that one of these may have something extraordinary to say in its own right. It is only then that we will make one of these very rare single vineyard wines.” Sam Neill, Proprietor


The Last Chance is a beautifully sited two-hectare terrace perched in bright clear air above the Earnscleugh Valley, carefully planted with well-tended Burgundian clone pinot noir. It nestles amongst a small cluster of the World’s most southerly vineyards and takes its name from the watercourse that runs through its heart, hand dug by gold miners in the 1860s, The Last Chance.

Award / Reviewer Date Rating Review Nick Stock Contributing Editor Oct 2018 96 Points

Aromas of boysenberries, blueberries and red cherries make for an immediately attractive pinot with some gently earthy notes and fresh violets. The palate has a supremely elegant, polished feel with a plush and elegant texture. Pinot at its seductive best. Drink or hold.
