Sacred Hill ‘Orange Label’ and ‘HALO’, and Wild South Pinot Noir 2015 Releases

As the Sacred Hill wine operation grows, the different labels are becoming more defined in style for their target audience. This allows a broader market penetration by the company. The Sacred Hill ‘Orange Label’ is the most widely distributed and accessible and offers classical varietal and style expression, along with regionality. The ‘HALO’ wines represent limited and selected parcels from premium vineyards. The ’Wild South’ wines are made only from Marlborough fruit, the brand originally beginning as the ‘Cairnbrae’ brand, which was purchased by Sacred Hill in 2001. All of the winemaking is overseen by chief winemaker Tony Bish. Here, I review a selection of new 2015 vintage releases under the three aforementioned brands.
