Neck of the Woods Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

04-Apr-2018

‘Neck of the Woods’ is the wine brand of AJ Johnson, a television industry man who started his wine journey in the vineyard and working with the wine at Mountford in North Canterbury. AJ flitted between wine and television for around 15 years, before he decided to start his own brand. His model is as a negociant as AJ does not own vineyards, but has good relationships with specialty growers in Central Otago, Hawke’s Bay and Marlborough. He has engaged James McElrea (who makes his own Black Peak wines, and was with Maude previously) to make the wine. The first release is the 2016 Gibbston Pinot Noir, which I review here. There will be a 2017 rosé and Chardonnay, to be bottled soon, and AJ is working in Bendigo for 2018. www.neckofthewoodswines.com
