2012 Grand Vin Pinot Noir, 'Clayvin Vineyard', Marlborough
The 2012 Gran Vin Pinot Noir from another remarkable year, is more akin to Chambolle-Musigny than New World pinot. This is the benchmark against which other New Zealand pinots should be judged. It is ripe and complex and you can enjoy now or cellar for the next 4-5 years.
Clayvin Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012 has been maturing gracefully in Clayvin's meticulous Marlborough Cellars since being bottled in late 2013. It is made in the Burgundian way and is a wine that needs time to show its impressive pedigree and class. This is elegant and refined pinot noir from one of New Zealands very best sites for high quality pinot.
"One of Marlborough's first hillside vineyards, Clayvin has produced a superb string of wines over many years."
Bob Campbell MW (New Zealands leading wine commentator)
"Whilst most New Zealand producers of Pinot Noir seek to impress with the fruit of their latest vintage, Clayvin's single vineyard wines are meant to age. A recent tasting proved that at 5 -10 years they are truly remarkable."
Steven Spurrier (Decanter Magazine)

Clayvin is managed by our chairman Johnny Wheeler in partnership with Swiss winemaker Georg Fromm and was first planted in 1991. This was the first ‘hillside’ vineyard to be cultivated in the beautiful Marlborough region at the top of the New Zealand’s South Island.
The exceptional characteristics of this vineyard are its terroir, location and unique closeplanting as found in the best sites of Burgundy. Located on the north facing slopes of the Brancott Valley in Marlborough, the Clayvin Vineyard takes its name from the clay-based subsoil that lies beneath the vineyard. This site has consistently produced wines which have attracted worldwide attention and acclaim, and as the vines age, the wines go from strength to strength with each vintage. As well as pinot noir, very good chardonnay and also syrah are grown here.
