Central Otago Pinot Noir wins a spot on world's top 30 best wine list
It will come as no surprise to lovers of Central Otago Pinot Noir to learn that one of their favourites has won the New Zealand Red Trophy at the world's biggest wine competition.
The International Wine Challenge 2020 has awarded the 2018 Coal Pit Tiwha Pinot Noir the New Zealand Red Trophy and also the Sustainable Trophy. And that's no mean feat at a competition where tens of thousands of wines are entered from around the world.
We have the 2017 Coal Pit Tiwha Pinot Noir, RRP $52.99, which is an outstanding wine, which is 100% produced from estate grown grapes on its elevated home block site in the Gibbston Valley, just up the hill from the well known Mount Edward Winery.
The Coal Pit Winery is owned by Rosie Dunphy, who bought the site in 2001 and who named the Tiwha Pinot Noir in tribute to her late father. The Coal Pit winery name pays homage to the early pioneers and gold miners in the region.
