award-winning pinot noir

Central Otago pinot noir wins a spot on world's top 30 best wine list!

It will come as no surprise to lovers of Central Otago Pinot Noir to learn that one of their favourites has won the New Zealand Red Trophy at the world's biggest wine competition. 

The International Wine Challenge 2020 has awarded the 2018 Coal Pit Tiwha Pinot Noir the New Zealand Red Trophy and also the Sustainable Trophy. And that's no mean feat at a competition where tens of thousands of wines are entered from around the world. 

The Coal Pit Winery is owned by Rosie Dunphy, who bought the site in 2001 and who named the Tiwha Pinot Noir in tribute to her late father. The Coal Pit winery name pays homage to the early pioneers and gold miners in the region. 

About the wine

An extremely approachable wine from the outset showing a perfumed nose with crushed rose petal and lavender, Damson plums and bramble berry underpinned by delicate dried herbs and thyme, reflective of the Central Otago terroir. Dark red fruits and cranberry abound on the palate with elegant and delicately integrated tannins finely balanced by a minerality typical of the Coal Pit vineyard. Showing good palate tension and linear length.

Typically, Coal Pit Pinot Noir peaks around 3-4 years of age, with some secondary character profiles apparent while retaining fruit vibrancy. With careful cellaring flavours will age gracefully into more tertiary characters of leather and beef tea, around 8 years old.

Enjoy with a wide range of food, however this wine matches exceptionally well with duck, lamb, mushroom and truffle dishes. A broad array of spices, including aniseed and cinnamon can be successfully paired to the wine’s flavours – get creative and best of all, enjoy with good company!
