Taking a hands on approach to wine making since 1998, the McLachlan family strive to produce wines that embody the absolute best of central Otago. This passion for the land runs in the family and is a hallmark of Peregrine as a business.
Saddleback is the second label of renowned central Otago winery Peregrine. This pinot is award winning and gives many of its rivals a real lesson in value for money.
The Saddleback Pinot Noir is named after the bold and beautiful South Island Saddleback, a native bird to New Zealand. And the wine is also a bold one, representing a fruity expression of pinot noir from central Otago.
Medium bodied with lovely red cherry fruit and hints of wild thyme. Soft tannins.
Fun fact: Peregrine are big sponsors of the Wingspan Birds of Prey Trust, who take care of injured and orphaned birds of prey.
