Central Otago-based Mount Michael Wines is launching a new range of affordable, artisan wines, under a new label – The Mountaineer. After more than two decades of making award-winning Pinot Noir. Head winemaker at Mount Michael Wines, Jody Pagey, hand-crafted each wine produced for The Mountaineer, ensuring excellent quality at an everyday price point. The Pinot Noir has been crafted from premium Central Otago fruit, sourced from a single vineyard selected for its bright fruit and balance. The dedicated team behind The Mountaineer is set to expand its portfolio of craft wines further later this year.
