Hidden in the folds of an historic gold mining valley at Bannockburn in Central Otago, the privately owned Domain Road Vineyard produces award-winning Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling wines. A grape-loving micro-climate combined with a mix of soil types, including high quality loam and ‘pipe clay’ plus traditional hands-on viticulture yield wines of the finest quality.
The Paradise Pinot Noir is a reserve wine made to reflect the best of the vintage. Harvested in mid-April from a mix of clones at one bunch per shoot and fermented ‘wild’. The wine was aged in French oak barriques for 14 months.
