Brodie Estate is a small family owned vineyard in Martinborough in the lower North Island of New Zealand. Martinborough was the first place to grow Pinot Noir successfully in New Zealand. It is ideal for Pinot Noir with a special climate.
Low rainfall, good heat in the summer but rarely above 31 degrees, long warm autumns with little rain and cool nights. Our terroir consists of silts over tight clays, wet in winter and rock hard in summer with tight gravels below.
Martinborough Pinot has similar phenolics to Central Otago Pinot except Martinborough wines have one less of the fruity characteristics and two more that express forest floor, savoury and mushroom characteristics.
