What’s next for New Zealand Pinot Noir?

Jeff Fyfe, general manager of winemaking, Yealands Family Wines

“In the past few years we have seen the style of wines being produced become more defined, our confidence has grown, and we are now saying: ‘This is our style, this is our story.’ Across the board, the quality of the wines are now outstanding, and this should only improve as vines get older and we get wiser.

“Kiwis are a fiercely competitive bunch, so we are simply all trying to produce the best-quality wine we can, which, in turn, can give consumers the confidence that if they choose a New Zealand Pinot Noir then they should be rewarded with a very pure expression of high-quality, cool-climate Pinot Noir.”
