Fruity & Luxurious

Proudly family owned, the Borthwick vineyard is an established vineyard situated in Gladstone, the heart of the Wairarapa. Producing quality wine for over a decade, Paddy, an experienced wine maker, has gained a reputation for producing consistently great wines. The twenty seven hectares of vines bordering the Ruamahunga River are growing on stony, free draining, alluvial soils, with a micro climate giving warm daily temperatures, cool nights and low rainfall; perfect conditions for producing distinctive, quality wines.

This is about the purity of Pinot Noir with spicy savoury and bright, juicy red fruits. It is medium-bodied with soft velvety tannins, a mix of tart and sweet cherry fruit with a chocolate touch to the lightly oaked finish and a spicy zestiness to the lingering aftertaste

A perfect pairing for grilled quail, roasted chicken or the richness of pork shoulder. This wine can also stand up to glazed salmon or a decadent pizza with sweet potato, balsamic onions and soppressata. 

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 3-4 weeks to be delivered.

The wine shows sweet berry characters with nuances of mixed spice, vanilla and game on the nose. It is succulent and smooth on the palate, delivering juicy fruit intensity and fine texture, backed by polished tannins. Lovely balance and harmony. At its best: now to 2022.
