Producer and Tasting Notes


Domain Road

Domain Road Vineyard is a privately owned vineyard producing award-winning red and white wines. It is located in Bannockburn, Central Otago, next to the popular Bannockburn Domain Camping Ground. The original 6.5 hectares of vines expanded in 211 with the addition of another 1 hectares of land adjacent to Felton Road vineyard. This has been planted in Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Noir grapes. Domain Road Vineyard's owners Graeme and Gillian Crosbie and their families have had a long association with the area. Graeme’s great grandfather built gold dredges up in the Nevis, while Gillian’s mother was a teacher at the local school for a short time. They have owned a house in Bannockburn for 25 years, and holidayed there for many years prior to that. Fascinated by the growth of vineyards and the wines they produced, the pair decided to try their hand at developing their own vineyard when an old apricot orchard in nearby Domain Road was for sale. In 22, the land was purchased, cleared and planted in Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling grapes.

Tasting Notes

Pears and stonefruit dominate the bouquet, together with hints of quince. The sweet taste of pears and peaches comes through on the palate. This medium bodied wine has a good texture and fine balance.
