The first thing that gets you is the color; dark, inky, opaque. The wine sits heavy in the glass, you know there's an experience about to happen. The aromas are full of cocoa, blackberry, blueberry and smoky, vanilla laden oak. The weight on the tongue is impressive; the ripe fruit engulfs your palate with a richness you'd expect from a much more expensive wine. The finish is seductive; long; perfectly complete.
Shaky Bridge Wines is located in the stunningly beautiful Alexandra Basin of Central Otago, New Zealand. The source vineyards are situated below the 45th Parallel in the southern most wine growing region on the globe. The location is ideally suited to the creation of the aromatic varieties of white wine, alongside Pinot Noir which is our primary variety.
Sourcing fruit from 6 distinct blocks that vary in age from 10 - 30+ years, Shaky Bridge Wines owns one of the oldest Pinot Noir vineyards in Central Otago. The various locations, soil types and clones used within each block provide our winemaker, Dave Grant, with a virtual painters pallete of flavours to create multi dimensional wines of exceptional quality, depth and satisfaction.
Food Pairing: Delicious with a Sunday Roast! Pair with duck, goose & other game birds.
