Elegant – Sensuous – Intimate.
Award Winning Pinot Noir wines from the Jacobson-Chiaroni family boutique vineyard. The wines produced from Judge Rock Vineyard have received many awards, showcasing the premium quality of Judge Rock wines. A romance not a blockbuster, feminine not masculine, balance not power, family not corporate, and love not lust.
Paul and Angela Jacobson (nee Chiaroni)’s vineyard is situated on an alluvial fan at Hillview Road below the airport plateau on the outskirts of Alexandra, Central Otago, New Zealand.
The vineyard is situated on an alluvial fan below the airport plateau and is sheltered from the north eastern and southern winds. Soils consist of fine schist and greywacke river sands.
We have eight hectares of westerly facing slopes with four hectares (13,000 vines) planted in Pinot Noir; the oldest of which planted in late 1998. The elegant, sensuous and intimate wines produced from this vineyard have received many global awards.
