Medium depth cherry red with a crimson-purple glow. Savory smelling with the sweetness of oak and cherry fruit pushing through. There's a feral complexity to the flavor with that typical Central Otago herbaceousness. Smooth and velvety, almost creamy, with a nice bite to the finish and a sweet fruited smoky aftertaste.
Pinot Noir is well-suited to pair with poultry, beef, fish, ham, lamb and pork. It will play well with creamy sauces, spicy seasonings and may just be one of the world's most versatile food wines.
Rabbit Ranch is a collaborative venture, formed by a group of vineyards that were all individually once part of a Central Otago sheep station. Banding together to form Rabbit Ranch, they have enlisted the help of Chard Farm as a production partner, and secured the services of John Wallace, Chard Farm's Winemaker, and Pinot Noir producer of many years. The Vineyards of Rabbit Ranch are located in the Cromwell Basin, predominately in the Lowburn area. They are all on light, stony soils, on areas that were once part of the glacial riverbed that flowed through the Cromwell area.
Juicy and fragrant, with impressive depth to wild berry, pomegranate and spice flavors wrapped around a solid core of gravel and sea salt. Cedar and sandalwood linger with fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2011
