The Power of Pinot Noir

Quartz Reef Wines was one of several Central Otago wineries to be recognised recently in The Real Review Top Wineries of New Zealand 2023.

The list is a national benchmark identifying where New Zealand wineries are placed amongst their peers. The awards panel reviews around 10,000 wines each year with certificates awarded to a select group of wineries that consistently produce excellent wine.

“We are so proud that Quartz Reef is named in The Real Review Top Wineries of New Zealand 2023,” says Quartz Reef marketing manager Lianne Collins. “Bob Campbell ONZM MW noted Quartz Reef is best known for its dense, powerful and consistently good Pinot Noir.”

Quartz Reef recently released their Royal Series 2019 Billie Jean vintage, grown from grapes selected from their most eastern vineyard block at Bendigo which is the first to see the sun.

“This area of the vineyard is affectionately known as the royal block by our team and Billie Jean is the third ferment to be released from Block 12 which makes it very special for our founder and winemaker Rudi Bauer,” says Lianne.
