Doctors Flat Pinot is about Steve Davies’ pursuit of wine true to its origin—wine of terroir. The vines are organically farmed with care and harvested by hand. The fruit is then fermented in small open tanks with minimal intervention. The wines spend 12 months in French barrels (about 1/3 new) and then a winter resting in tank, before being bottled in the following spring without fining or filtration.
Only the best of the small lots are blended to make the single vineyard Doctors Flat Pinot Noir.

What The Critics Say
96/100 Bob Campbell MW
"Deep, velvety pinot noir with cassis, red-fleshed plum, and layers of spice and nutty oak. Still relatively youthful but a delight to taste and with potential to get even better with bottle age. A classic Bannockburn signature. 20 MAR 2020." Drink 2020 - 2026

94/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 vintage)
"Distinctive in its ripeness and steely almost haunting bouquet. Aromas of dried raspberry and dark spicy plum, black currant of dark rose, classic Otago wild thyme and rocky mineral layers; complex, youthful and engaging. On the palate - fruity, tense, youthful and dry. Fruit flavours reflect the nose with raspberry and red cherry, some red apple skin then earth, mineral, dried herb and plum. Firm tannins, medium+ acidity and a lengthy persistent finish. A lovely wine still coming together. Will age well from today and through 2022. Best drinking 2021 through 2027."

95/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim (2016 vintage)
"A stunning rendition offering elegance as well as stylish opulence; the bouquet shows dark plum, sweet cherry, floral, vanilla and toasted nut characters with nuances of anise and olive. The palate is wonderfully weighted and concentrated, displaying multi-layered mouthfeel and supple tannins, finishing impressively long and expansive. At its best: now to 2026. $49.00. March 2020."
