Carrick

Central Otago, New Zealand

 
Bannockburn, home to Carrick wines is nestled at the southern end of one of the broad glacial river valleys surrounded by the Cairnmuir and Carrick mountain ranges. The long cool autumns with their warm days and cool nights create ideal conditions for the production of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Riesling. In 1993 Carrick's first vineyard was planted with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris and Sauvignon Blanc on the north facing Cairnmuir Terraces surrounded by the waters of Lake Dunstan. On the Eastern side of Cairnmuir Road our vineyards produce Pinot Noir and Riesling. Situated on windblown loess soils the vineyards have low natural fertility encouraging the vines to grow their roots into the deep fractured schist layers resulting in wines of character and structure. Mindful of the special nature of the soils, Carrick is farmed using only organic practices. In order to produce exceptional wines; pruning, shoot positioning, shoot and fruit thinning, leaf plucking and picking are carried out by hand. There is extensive use of cover crops to encourage natural biodiversity and useful insects and we are rewarded by the numbers of beneficial birds that live in the vineyards. The "must" from the winery along with other organic material is composted and fed back to the vineyards.
 
 
 
Winemaker: Francis Hut joined Carrick in 2010 having decided that Central Otago was where he wanted to be. Being a thorough young man he decided that in order to make wine in Central Otago he needed to know the vineyard first so spent a year working with Blair, our viticulturist before being appointed as Carrick Winemaker in August 2011. He has a particular interest in organic and biodynamic growing of grapes and wine production, so was specially delighted to be the first Carrick winemaker when we were able to show the world our organic certification on our 2012 botttlings.
Viticulturalist: Blair Deaker Originally a Cromwell boy but has been away for a significant time. Returned to Cromwell and Carrick from Villa Maria organic vineyards and has been instrumental in moving Carrick towards its organic status. Great with people, hens, dogs, vegetable gardens, phases of the moon, brews for our compost and of course vineyards
General Manager: Steve Green the founder of Carrick is multi skilled and busy! Initially involved in the development of the vineyards and the setting of the winery, his skills and experience in the wine industry help define Carrick as one of the leading Central Otago wineries. As well as guiding and promoting Carrick wines in the local and international markets, Steve is on the Board of Wine New Zealand, and has been both the chairperson of Central Otago Pinot Noir Limited, the highly successful marketing arm of Central Otago and also the President of the Central Otago Winegrowers Association. He travels the world on Carrick's behalf but likes nothing better than to be in a back country hut enjoying a bottle of Carrick Pinot Noir. g
