Bought this today from VM broker -

Bendigo Hills - The Stone Cottage Pinot Noir 2016. Apparently its Rock Ferry 3rd Rock but relabelled due to something with rights or label clash in Australia...Anyway it was on pre arival so no doubt it’ll hit the in boxes soon

Anyway, I plunged in for 12 bottles which at about $20 per bottle minus a referal credit of $25 with free shipping will sort me out for my pinot scarcity.
It's listed at $16 a bottle, did you receive it yet?

Are you seeing the Bendigo hills 2018 @ $16?

The ‘stone cottage’ bendigo hills is slightly different.

Oh $19.90, and this is solid? It's relabeled?

Should be pretty damn good I reckon. You’d be hard pushed to get better for the price point IMO. Proof is in the pudding - I’ll try it tomorrow.
As I said above it’s relabelled from Rock Ferry Winery as informed by the VM broker

Bendigo Hills Stone Cottage Pinot

So I got my box about an hour ago. Had one of those days where things just aint working the way they should. Add that to my anticipation of receiving this wine I thought - Hey, it's 5 o clock in NZ....

Looks great in the glass - A wonderful translucent cherry red with purple hue. You can tell this has some depth by looking at it.
The nose is subtle spice and vanilla. Savory red fruits with a touch of funk.
The palate is pretty damn good! Front to back palate is top notch and smooth. Powerful and traditional pinot flavors holding their weight with a lingering finish and decent tannins. This pinot is no teenager and with the bit of age it has, it is still very lively! Could go another few years IMO.

4.2 Stars
Ticks all my boxes


For $19.90 you'll be hard push to find a better wine. Original price $60 - would I pay that? Probably not, if I did, I would not be astoundingly disappointed. I reckon this wine sits around the $35-$45 bracket and would easily hold it's own with pinots in that bracket.

If you like Central Otago Pinot, it's worth jumping on!
