The name Whistling Buoy comes from the original buoy marking the entrance into Lyttelton Harbour.

The grapes for this Pinot Noir are from the Half Acre Vineyard, on the southern flank of Lyttelton Harbour crater, on a north-facing, sun-drenched slope, protected from the easterly breeze. This site was first planted in 2000 in a range of Burgundian clones.

The Pinot Noir exudes aromas of cherry and plum with a subtle hint of toasty oak. The palate is rich with blue fruits, red liquorice and chocolate, with rounded tannin. It is finely balanced giving a wonderful length and flow through to a well-rounded finish.
