This Pinot Noir is grown in the Bendigo and Alexandra sub-region of Central Otago. The 2019 vintage in Central Otago was characterized by typically warm days and cool nights to maintain the vibrant, varietal character of the delicate Pinot Noir.
Fallen Angel wines are high quality wines that are not grown on Waiheke.
In creating this range we are recognising that other regions are more suitable to the growing and making of other varieties i.e. Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and Otago Pinot Noir.
This range was originally developed for the Stonyridge Vineyard Restaurant, but has become so successful the team decided to make it available to the trade and export market. To achieve the style we want, we have created joint venture relationships with some of New Zealand’s top wine makers, and work with them to produce the outstanding wines that we have designed.
The hallmarks of this range are distinctive varietal characteristics and integrity, low acidity and extremely ripe fruit. These are wines to be loved and enjoyed and yet have the ability to stand up against some of the finest wines in their categories.
