Coal Pit ‘Tiwha’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

27-Mar-2017
Rosie Dunphy established Coal Pit Wines when she purchased a historical coal pit site in the Gibbston Valley in 2001 with vines established in 1994. Undergoing a programme of revitalisation, there are now 5.5 ha of Pinot Noir and 2.0 ha of Sauvignon Blanc on the 12 ha site. A 30 tonne capacity winery was built in time for the 2007 vintage. Gary Crabbe is the viticulturist and his wife Lynn Horton is the winemaker. Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir are produced. The flagship Pinot Noir is named ‘Tiwha’ as a tribute to Rosie’s late father. The wines are well-received and perform well in judgings. Here, I review the new release 2015 ‘Tiwha’ Pinot Noir. www.coalpitwine.com
