Gold Outstanding & Pinot Noir Trophy, IWSC 2018
Takapoto Estate wins IWSC Pinot Noir Trophy for second year running
We can proudly say we foresaw the accolades for this Pinot Noir coming! As we sat with winemaker Andy Anderson in June 2018 and tasted his Trophy winning 2012 Bannockburn Pinot Noir (sold out) he also presented this wine, the Takapoto Estate 2014 Single Vineyard Gibbston Pinot Noir. Wow, this also caught the attention of our palates with its dark fruited savoury characters, delightful hints of smokey toasty oak and fine tannins. This is a wine that catches the attention of Pinot Noir lovers and we were not surprised when Andy called us to advise it had won the IWSC Trophy - back to back Trophy awards for Takapoto Estate. Limited stocks, get it while you can.
