Wine Tasting at No Idea

Established in 1993 by itinerant actor Sam Neill, initially the sole aim was to share ethereal Pinot Noir moments
with loved ones. Sam is now the only producer to own small parcels of vines in the three main valleys of Central
Otago – Gibbston, Cromwell (Bannockburn) and Alexandra – all are certified organic. Two Paddocks Estate Pinot
Noir is the flagship Central Otago assemblage . A perfumed, spicy and concentrated barrel selection from older blocks.
Tiny volumes of rarer single vineyard wines, The Proprietor’s Reserves, are also produced. Sam writes the Two
Paddocks website with one simple rule – it “must keep him amused”.


A cool spring in October and into November was followed by warm dry weather over December and a particularly hot and dry January. Flowering was finished by the end of December. Vigour was low and the vines were only green thinned and shoulders removed in the same pass. Wide open bunches meant very little disease pressure was experienced and started harvest on the 1st April 2015.
