Bannock Brae Goldfields Pinot noir 2011
Bannock Brae Barrel Selection Pinot noir 2009
This wine has flavours of black cherries, dark plums and berries. Behind these primary flavours there is an interesting hint of herbs, spice, mushroom, leather and even liquorice complementing its velvety mouthfeel.

Bannock Brae Goldfields Dry Riesling 2011
The semi-oxidative winemaking process used to make this wine results in a more textural finish while the fruit forwardness of most NZ Rieslings is subdued. With minimal malolactic fermentation there is a Granny Smith apple character along with pronounced citrus overtones. The wine boasts honey flavours which will continue to develop with age along with some interesting ‘kerosene’ notes.
Bannock Brae Cathy’s Rosé 2012
This Rosé is a pure reflection of the Pinot noir grape. A beautifully opulent nose of freshly picked red berry fruits with cherry, melon and candy-floss aromas.
Bannock Brae Marlene’s Grüner Veltliner 2012
This wine is a complex wine with delicate white blossom, white pepper, nectarine and hints of dill on the nose. Flavours of peach nectar sit alongside spice and white pepper nicely.
