Only made in the best years, this is the fifth release of our premium Proprietor’s Reserve. 

Grown in a settled Central Otago season characterised by low yields and intense fruit concentration. Crafted from hand-picked fruit, grown on 25+ year old vines at our elevated single vineyard in Gibbston. Barrel fermentation with regular lees stirring imparts texture and palate weight, beautifully complementing the exotic fruit profile.

Delicate aromas of kaffir lime leaf, lemon zest and orange blossom are in harmony with exotic notes of caraway seeds and jalapeño. The palate evokes a savoury and textural medium-bodied weight, with juicy tones of gooseberry supported by a wet stone and crushed schist vibrancy. A final lick of saline is apparent, typical of the Coal Pit vineyard and drawing out the length of this refined and elegant wine.

Succulent and dry, drink now or allow this to develop in the cellar for 2-5 years to allow a multi layered textural element to emerge.

The striking Heritage Series label is the work of Chris Heaphy, famed New Zealand artist and creator of all the Coal Pit labels. The distinctive koru forms reflected here are considered traditional Māori symbols of new life and growth.
