Ok, so this isn't a photo of their award winning winery, it's the woolshed. But a better angle to reflect on the stunning stillness (not perfectly still, but still enough) and light of a late Central Otago autumn afternoon.
We did a tasting in the Mother Ship. Warm toasty Pinot noir to warm the bones of weary travellers. The tasting area overlooks the barrel room and has some great seating so you can do it all in comfort.. lovely riesling as well.
Previously, I'd been there for a Shapeshifter concert two years before. As if you needed another reason to go to Central Otago, the summer concert series is a perfect way to take in a great Kiwi band or two.. sitting on the hill and sipping a sublime wine (or a skillfullly crafted local beer) in this stunning natural ampitheatre.
