Domaine-Thomson ‘Surveyor Thomson’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014


Domaine-Thomson is the Pinot Noir operation of David Hall-Jones and Pui Mun (PM) Chan who established their 14 ha vineyard in Lowburn, Central Otago in 2000, planting Pommard and Dijon clones. From it, they produce the top tier ‘Surveyor Thomson’ wine, named after David’s forebear who was New Zealand’s first Surveyor General, and the more accessible ‘Explorer’ wine, referring to him also. The vineyard is tended by Grant Rolston and Su Hoskin of Vinewise Viticulture, being certified BioGro organic in 2016, and managed biodynamucally now. The wines are made by Dean Shaw of COWCO. Domaine-Thomson also encompasses a parcel of vines in ’Les Evocelles’, a vineyard in Gevrey-Chambertin, acquired in 2013, so the domaine has holdings in the northern and southern hemispheres.
