Have you ever wondered how the same wine variety from the same vineyard differs between vintages? This is your opportunity to make that comparison. It is called a vertical tasting and because our wines are from a single vineyard, i.e. not blended, it truly reflects the differences of each growing year.
The Half Acre three pack makes a great gift idea or simply a convenient way to sample our wines and experience the differences between vintages. Package includes:
Five star - Sam Kim Wine Orbit Review
Four star - Raymond Chan

Limited to 420 individually numbered bottles
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.
Limited to 600 individually numbered bottles
This is a luscious Pinot Noir with red and blue fruits on the nose, a whiff of violet florals and smoky savoury oak.
The palate is spicy and rich with fruit density, a fine tannin structure and balanced acidity forming a backdrop to drive a long and full finish.
Delicious now or cellar up to ten years.
