Critic Reviews

“If you’re going to spend over $30 on a New World Pinot Noir you can’t go wrong here. The wine opens with cherries and the sweeter side of rhubarb, along with some green tea vibes. On the palate the mouthfeel is soft and supple with a prominent tannin structure, for Pinot, and well balanced acidity promoting added notes of earthy strap leather and seasoned raw meat. It’s one of the few wines from New Zealand with cork, so it will age a bit as well.”

“This wine starts a little barnyardy, which is unusual for this producer. It blows off a little, but a leathery, earthy quality remains, along with slightly flashy oak. There’s plenty of plump red-currant and blueberry fruit, though, along with violets and a peppery spice. The palate is supple and juicy with a soft grip of savory tannins and a tangy, exotic spiced finish. Drink now through 2027.”

“Although Peregrine’s winery is in Gibbston, it sources most of its fruit from Bendigo and Pisa. The 2016 Pinot Noir offers ripe, plummy notions of black cherries and cola, a medium to full-bodied feel on the palate and a crisp finish. Hints of spice bring complexity, while the tannins are ripe but firm.”

“Fresh and elegant, with matcha green tea notes complementing the cranberry and cherry flavors. Spice, toast and cedar details linger around the firm core.“

About The Winery
Peregrine Wines winery and vineyards are located in the southernmost grape-growing region in the world, at latitude 45 degrees south, in Central Otago, the heart of New Zealand’s South Island. Central Otago is New Zealand’s only inland and elevated wine growing region, with vineyards nestled in breathtaking river valleys, clinging to snow-capped mountainsides or perched gently on the shores of crystal clear lakes. Peregrine Wines is named in honor of New Zealand’s endemic falcon (Karearea in Maori), a bird without rival or fear. A bird that combines both power and finesse, the essence of Peregrine’s range of wines. A boutique, artisanal producer, Peregrine focuses on Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Riesling, and Chardonnay. It is a brand that has, since its first vintage in 1998, gained a reputation both domestically and internationally as one of New Zealand’s iconic wine brands. The winery has been awarded numerous international and domestic trophies, gold medals, and accolades that fully justify this status.
