Sato Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2022


In stock
Central Otago, New Zealand


A new wine for 2022, Yoshiaki and Kyoko are now sourcing fruit from the BioGro certified Domain Road Vineyard in Bannockburn as part of their négoce (bought fruit) range.

La Ferme de Sato is the culmination of Yoshiaki and Kyoko Sato’s dream of growing and making great wine in Central Otago, along natural principles and harnessing the philosophies and skills they have gained along the way working at a stellar roll call of the world’s finest addresses; Domaines Bizot, Matassa, Huber, Pierre Frick, Christian Binner, Pacalet, Felton Road and Mt Edward.

After searching for five years, they found the perfect site on a peninsula of the Pisa Ranges on the upper slopes (295-345 masl) of Lowburn district and in 2016 proceeded to plant out 3.2ha of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Gamay, Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc with biodynamic methods. Close-planted at 5,600 vines/ha, it is fully certified organic with BioGro and vinified at their own winery (previous to 2019, the wines were made at Rockburn and prior to that at Mt. Edward).

Tasting Profile

The wine is intense in aroma, colour and flavour, with deep purple-blue fruits, beautifully structured and fine-grained tannins, and a concentration of flavour and length we haven't yet seen before! More fruitful and less savoury than Northburn, this wine is a delicious and unique addition to their lineup!
