Description

I think we can safely say Shaky Bridge Pioneer Series is Central Otago’s (and NZ’s) finest bang for buck Pinot... the fruit emanating from average 30-year old vines on their original rootstock and the winemaking is full noise including 100% French oak barrel ageing (mix of new & seasoned). We know of no other Pinot Noir made from genuine old vines and without expense selling under $30... let alone in the low $20’s. The proof is in the drinking. The classic Alexandra perfumes of spicy fruits burst from the glass with absolute purpose in this 2019 Pinot Noir, reminding you that Shaky Bridge are in possession of some of the oldest vines in Central Otago. Classy, opulent and sophisticated, it is silky and genuinely full bodied. This is a serious Otago experience at a very unserious price - almost too good to be true! Savour between now and 2025.

Smells
Haunting aromas of spiced cherries, roses, wild thyme, and fresh summer plums.

Tastes
A voluptuous, full-flavoured Pinot with a very silky textural mouthfeel, the tannins are refined and smooth as my friends. It abounds with opulent dark cherry and plum fruits underpinned by subtle savoury complexities. Its so dam good that you will be irresistibly reaching for your glass all night. Premium Otago Pinot drinkers can seriously bridge the quality gap between everyday and special occasion drinking by buying into Shaky Bridge... this utterly delicious 2019 vintage will drink superbly through 2025!
