Settle down to a Sunday roast of British pork and open a bottle of Borthwick Vineyard Pinot Noir from New Zealand to accompany it Brooding black cherry and plum fruits with a touch of cigar box. Velvety soft, restrained rich black fruits with tobacco and spice on the palate. Once again, another fine Pinot from the extremely talented Paddy Borthwick.
It took nearly 10 years for Paddy Borthwick to convert part of his family’s sheep and cattle station in Wairarapa, in the south of New Zealand’s North Island, into a wine estate. He was convinced that an old, stony river terrace with free-draining alluvial soil and a unique micro-climate was perfect for growing premium wine grapes. After years of studying and winemaking experiences abroad, Paddy Borthwick returned to Wairarapa and began planting vines in 1996. A firm believer in sustainable agriculture, and with a relatively hands-off approach in the vineyard and winery, he crafts lively, tense and incredibly precise wines.
Just excellent service
