Central Otago Well Represented at Wine Event

Central Otago Well Represented at Prestigious Wine Event

For Immediate Release

Thirty-three Central Otago wineries will be represented at Pinot Noir 2010 in Wellington next February.

Pinot Noir 2010 is widely regarded as New Zealand’s most prestigious international wine event and has been held in Wellington every three years since 2001.

“And by the time Pinot Noir 2010 kicks off on February 1 next year 100+ of our top wineries will join up to 400 of the world’s most influential wine trade, writers and commentators in four days of wine and food heaven,” says Pinot Noir 2010 Board member and owner of Carrick Wines, Steve Green.

“Since the undisputed success of the 2007 event we have been working hard to create the next page in New Zealand’s Pinot Noir story,” says Steve.

“In 2007 we said to the wine world ‘come and see for yourself how good we are’ in 2010 we’ll look at our Pinot Noir based on its regional differences, our ability to grow fantastic wine using sustainable growing practices and our ability to create Pinot Noir that develops and matures with age.”

The ability for our Pinot’s to hold true as they age is vitally important to the ongoing success of this tricky to grow variety, says Steve. So in 2010 this will be put to the test in a never-seen-before formal tasting of a line up of 2003 New Zealand Pinot Noirs.

“We’re tremendously excited at the prospect of this special tasting as well as, once again, being able to attract some world class speakers and delegates,” said Steve.

“Names like Matthew Jukes, Oz Clarke, Leslie Sbrocco, Nick Stock, Simon Tam and our very own Bob Campbell MW are hugely significant names in the wine world. And when you add them to the likes of Doug Bell, Global Wine Buyer for Wholefoods – a US-based $US8.5 billion turnover organic supermarket chain – you begin to get the significance of the event for New Zealand.”
