The Waitaki Valley, while being most famous as the hometown of New Zealand super-crush Richie McCaw, is one of the hidden wine regions that should definitely be on any wine enthusiasts wish list.
Its rich limestone soils and stunning scenery give the wines a special flavour profile that is all its own and today we’re tasting the 2015 Q Pinot Noir from this upcoming region.
Enigmatic with a simple Q moniker, these wines are named to emulate elegance and character.
Many wineries pride themselves as being boutique but when you produce wines in a sub-region that most people haven’t heard of, all wines come from a single vineyard and one enthusiastic wine lover is pretty much running the show, you know you found a little gem.
We caught up with Managing Director of Q Wine Jules Matthews to find out more about this boutique brand from the Waitaki Valley in North Otago.
