LOOKING FOR A TOP QUALITY CENTRAL OTAGO PINOT NOIR UNDER $30?

Legendary Wine Entrepreneur, Greg Hay - previously of Chard Farm and Peregrine, and the inspiration behind this wonderful newcomer brand Putangi by Wet Jacket Wines, has teamed up with the highly awarded winemaking skills of Peter Bartle. With 26 years of winemaking experience, a finalist in last year's Winemaker of the Year, and numerous World Champ titles to his name, Pete worked with Greg at Peregrine, where their dream first began to craft a multi regional blend that illustrated all the beautiful nuances the region has to offer.

The brand is a tribute to the conservation pioneer Richard Henry, who rowed out to Resolution Island in his dinghy named 'Putangi' giving safe passage to hundreds of native birds under pressure from Stoats and Weasels in the late 1800's ... a remarkable story in itself. But the truly remarkable thing about this brand, is the quality of these wines and the outstanding value they offer!

It can be a crowded market in Central Otago Pinot Noir up to $35, with many wines leaving you to question what all the hype is about! We discovered this range last year which had previously been Cellar Door only, and its still not widely available due to its limited volumes. The 2019 Pinot blew us all away, but they've just released this cracking 2020 which we've all heard is a standout vintage, and it shows in the bottle for sure! This is a stellar example of sub-regional blending, combining fruit from Bannockburn, Gibbston and Alexandra into a seamless stroke of brilliance in one bottle.

A salivating, textural Pinot Noir that has charisma and charm. Not your average up front and fruity Pinot, rather an exciting wine with vibrancy and sensual tannins that generously coat the entire palate and linger. Red fruit flavours persist with dusty cinnamon and vanilla with a stone sucking texture on the finish... It's a super-star!

And as if being a perfectly delightful Central Otago Pinot at a bargain price wasn't enough ... there's an easy 8-10 years of aging in this beauty, boosting that incredible value and making it an UNDENIABLE CELLAR BARGAIN AT JUST 27.99!

So don't miss this opportunity to be first in your circle to introduce others to this wonderful Pinot. It's such good value, it should come with its own warning on the label. Shop NOW!

Description

Putangi is the name dedicated to the dingy that Richard Henry used to try and save as many of our rarest birds, Kakapo and Kiwi from extinction from rodents. He rowed around the Dusky Sounds in his dingy named Putangi, collecting as many birds as possible, transferring them to what he hoped would be the safety of Resolution Island. Putangi is the Maori name for Paradise Duck. Certainly, a man of inspiration and dedication.

Smells

Dark berry fruits aromas with black cherries, wild raspberries infused with cinnamon doughnuts, hints of vanilla and baking spices.

Tastes

A salivating, textural Pinot Noir that has charisma and charm. Not your average up front and fruity Pinot, rather an exciting wine with vibrancy and sensual tannins that generously coat the entire palate and linger. Red fruit flavours persist with dusty cinnamon and vanilla with a stone sucking texture on the finish. Delicious and no hurry to drink as will age for 8-10 years or more. Gamey meats or pasta will go a treat with this wine.
