What’s next for New Zealand Pinot Noir?

Eveline Fraser, winemaker, Little Beauty

“We must continue with our vigilance towards bio security and proactively pursue the long overdue process of having official GIs for our viticultural regions. We will support any developments to improve on NZ’s sustainability programme and continue to develop our communications to raise awareness about these efforts.

“We must only produce wines with integrity and absolutely resist the urge to compromise. Pinot Noir does not take kindly to short cuts or cost cutting. For this wine to be great, it demands low yields, intensive canopy management, careful hand picking, sorting of fruit pre fermentation and sensitive winemaking with careful barrel ageing.”
