The Unravelled Pinot Noir is a premium wine made from predominately Dijon clones on various rootstocks. This half of the Carrick vineyard is 100% Pinot Noir, planted in 1996 and is colloquially named “Le Chat” which has nothing to do with a cat of any sort. The 2016 Unravelled Pinot Noir shows dark fruits and spice on the nose. This wine has lovely flow and entry onto the palate with dark cherry, blackcurrants and the unmistakable tannin structure that can only come from the Cairnmuir Terraces of Bannockburn where the winery and vineyard is situated. This is a certified organic, single vineyard, Central Otago Pinot Noir that is light bodied and finely structured. We enjoy this as our day to day dinner wine.

All of the vineyard is tended by hand, allowing for careful management of the individual vines from pruning, leaf plucking and shoot-thinning right through to harvesting. The wine is fermented in small open top fermenters and typically has a 5-7 day pre-ferment cold soak with minimal punch downs throughout fermentation, followed by 5-7 days extended maceration.  All parcels are carefully de-stemmed and undergo wild, indigenous, yeast fermentation which encapsulate the Carrick fruit characters. The wine is matured for 11 months in French oak, of which about 15% is new.
