Peregrine Wines are an iconic family winery and a benchmark of premium Central Otago Pinot Noir, in particular. The McLachlan family established Peregrine in 1998 in Gibbston with a holistic farming philosophy that they approach with fastidious care for the land. The vineyards are grown organically and with integrated crops and livestock farming, it is a rigorously managed estate that has earned a reputation for excellence both domestically and internationally.
Peregrine Pinot Noir 2021
I think the first Peregrine Pinot Noir I tasted was the 2002, on release, back in the day. I always like the look of the label.
Cherry cola, thyme, Campari, ironstone, Dutch liquorice. It’s quite rugged, with some pleasing herbal bitterness, ripe orange acidity, plenty of flavour, and a fair bit of oomph and character, then some chicory and cherry on a finish of good length. Nice wine. Balanced. Good to drink.
