Pisa Range Estate‘ Black Poplar’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015


Warwick and Jenny Hawker were among the pioneers in planting Pinot Noir in the Pisa region of Central Otago in 1995 under the guidance of the late Mike Wolter. In exchange in supplying fruit, Warwick and Jenny had wine made under their own label by Rudi Bauer when he began his own enterprise. This relationship remains today, the yineyard plantings have been expanded to include Riesling, and it is managed to organic and biodynamic principles. A 4 ha section of the vineyard near to 100 y.o. poplar trees has proven to be especially favourable for Pinot Noir and the ‘Black Poplar Block’ bottling of wines from this site have won many top awards. Last year, sadly, Jenny passed away. The Hawker family will be increasingly involved in the business, moving forward. Here, I review the new release 2015 Pisa Range Estate ‘Black Poplar Block’ Pinot Noir. www.pisarangeestate.co.nz
