What’s next for New Zealand Pinot Noir?

Helen Morrison, chief winemaker in Marlborough, Villa Maria

“It’s an exciting time to be part of the industry, when our key focus is on the evolution of our New Zealand style of Pinot Noir. For a wine industry with a relatively short history, New Zealand has a very collaborative approach, sharing knowledge in every area of the business from viticulture and winemaking through to sales and marketing. What remains untested, but promises to deliver great results in the future, is the ability of our Pinot Noir to age well.

“With many vineyards planted only 20 years ago, our highest tiers or icon Pinot Noir wines are yet to show the world their longevity or ability to cellar but retain freshness, fruit and textures that speak of their turangawaewae for years to come.”
