2020 Satellite Pinot Noir


Hints of Cherry with an overlay of dried spice and cloves.


Layers of bright red fruit with hints of vanillin oak creating a finely balanced and long finish.


Selected estate vineyard blocks were kept separate until final blending. The grape bunches are mostly destemmed and all fermented in open vats. After gentle plunging during fermentation to extract colour and flavour the wine was pressed off skins and matured for 11 months prior to blending.


The 2020 season followed a similar pattern to last year. A warm spring allowed the vines to escape frosts, while an above-average rainfall led to early flowering. The temperatures in January and February were more moderate which alleviated some of the effects of drought and lead to clean, disease free fruit.

Our Forest & Bird Mission

It's been an incredible journey to nurture and restore the spring-fed native wetland at our 'Area H' vineyard over the past few years - now a sanctuary for countless native trees, birds and other wildlife. This year we're on a mission to take the initiative further than our own backyard!

Satellite + Forest & Bird

We are all satellite’s drifting around a beautiful planet. It’s important that we protect it. We’ve aligned our Satellite wines with Forest & Bird to help give nature a voice. Now you can enjoy a gold medal wine while supporting Forest & Bird too
