TWO PADDOCKS THE FIRST PADDOCK PINOT NOIR
“We grow our premium Two Paddocks Pinot Noir entirely on our four small Vineyards in Central Otago. In some exceptional vintages, listening carefully, we realize that one of these may have something extraordinary to say in its own right. It is only then that we will make one of these very rare single vineyard wines.”
Sam Neill, Founder & Proprietor
The First Paddock is our original much loved Two Paddocks vineyard. Planted in 1993, it is now one of the older blocks in Central Otago. Superbly situated in the midst of upper Gibbston, planted in carefully selected Burgundian clone pinot noir vines and meticulously tended. This is a thoughtfully crafted expression of our foundation site.

From a small vineyard in the Gibbston subregion planted in 1993, Two Paddocks' 2017 The First Paddock Pinot Noir is wonderfully silky and almost ephemeral in its mouthfeel. It's medium-bodied but near weightless, with dancing flecks of red berries, resinous herbs, decaying leaves and dark chocolate creating ample complexity, then finishing crisp and lingering.
