The new 2014 vintage of this New Zealand Grand Vin Pinot Noir from Clayvin Vineyard is superb. It is beautifully matured and with seven years in the making, is at its perfect peak of maturity.

This wine is particularly pleasing to me as I co-managed the estate there until 2015, and this was one of the last vintages I was directly involved in. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate referred to the 2014 vintage in Marlborough as outstanding with wines classed as early maturing and accessible. Indeed the 2014 is beautifully accessible now, and will certainly continue to develop in bottle over the next 5+ years.

Johnny Wheeler

Tasting note:
2014 was a top vintage for the region and this pinot noir is ageing very well. The nose already offers hints of the secondary, earthy, forest-floor aromas which pinot-lovers relish. The palate initially presents a delicate medley of red berry fruit, progressing to a velvety and smooth herbaceous character. The tannins are exceptionally fine and lead to a very complex and lengthy finish.

Critics Review:
"The 2014 Clayvin Vineyard Grand Vin Pinot Noir is the current release from Wheeler & Fromm in Marlborough, NZ, and a serious rival to fine red Burgundy. It's soft, smooth and elegant with dark, plummy fruit and just a hint of seductive earthiness."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator

"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)

Producer Information - Wheeler & Fromm

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.
