Pisa Range Estate
Established in 1995 in Pisa (near Cromwell, Central Otago), this special site is ideal for premium grape production. Close vine spacing, careful clonal selection, low crop yields, biodynamic preparations, and hand-harvesting.
The Pisa Range Estate label was launched with the 2000 vintage. The 'Black Poplar Block' Pinot Noir is rated as a New Zealand "classic," and is the signature wine from the oldest vines.
Articles About Pisa Range Estate
2012 Pisa Range Estate Black Poplar Block Central Otago New Zealand Pinot Noir
14.0% alc., screwcap. Imported by Terrell Wines, San Francisco, CA. Aged 12 months in French oak. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Aromas of chocolate-covered cherries, spice and wine cave lead to deep flavors of cherry, cranberry and strawberry that coat the palate with goodness. A sophisticated offering with integrated tannins and an intensely fruity finish. More concentrated, with less oak sheen, than the 2011 Pisa Range wine reviewed today. Very seductive and user-friendly. Score: 92. Reviewed October 21, 2014 ARTICLE »
2011 Pisa Range Estate Run 245 Central Otago New Zealand Pinot Noir
14.0% alc., screwcap. Imported by Terrel Wines, San Francisco, CA. These wines are organically farmed in the Pisa sub region of Central Otago and vinified by acclaimed winemaker Rudi Bauer. Run 245 is the pastural tenure number given to this land at Pisa in 1866. This vineyard was established in 1995. Aged 12 months in French oak. · Moderately light garnet color in the glass. Very charming nose immediately with scents of cherry pie, spice, and sandalwood. The cherry and cranberry fruit really sings on the palate but is somewhat sequestered by and exuberant oak overlay. Lively and crisp, with pretty fruit, ending with some finishing intensity and a tug of tobacco oak. Score: 89. Reviewed October 21, 2014 ARTICLE »
