Judged at the recent 2017 Bragato Wine Awards as the Champion Pinot Noir, we're very proud of this Ruby Bay Pinot Noir 2016. The volume of entries for this category was such that all of the judging panels spent an entire morning looking exclusively at Pinot Noir; so the competition for this particular award was fierce.

Across the Nelson and Marlborough region there are number of wineries that are renowned for producing outstanding Pinot Noir wines, however, in a recent report by Nick Stock regional stars include Neudorf, which works with old vines, and Mahana, run by Michael Glover.
Stock described both the 2014 and 2015 Neudorf Moutere Pinot Noirs as worthy of collecting and maturing; capable of attaining the kind of sweet decay that you find in the best older Burgundy wines with age.
It's no secret that Nelson produces some of New Zealand's finest wine; from Chardonnay to Aromatics, Sauvignon to Pinots. But it's always great confirmation when our wines are recognised amongst the greatest.
Two Nelson Pinots were named as the top two NZ Pinots by Jasper Morris MW, in a recent tasting of NZ Pinots for the magazine The World of Fine Wine.
