"A classic Central Pinot with pure fruit flavours that are as clean as the driven snow. Aromas of strawberries, red cherries, thyme and hints of forest floor. The palate is juicy and sweet with soft, smooth tannins with a fresh acid drive on the finish. Serve with: Mushroom dishes or gamey meats." - Lynnette Hudson, Experienced Winemaker and Writer
"The Powerhouse Wine Co brings together a range of small, boutique wine brands from around New Zealand and Australia. Driven Snow is one of these brands and their 2017 Central Otago Pinot Noir is a fantastic example of value for money. Grapes were sourced from around Mt Dunstan and Bendigo, areas just outside of Cromwell. Wild strawberries and ripe red cherries are most obvious as well as a hint of smoke and dried thyme. Drink now and into 2022." - Wine Central Tasting Panel
Grapes from Bendigo and Mt Dunstan, Alexandra.
The wine was aged in old French Oak for 10 months before bottling.
94 Points, Wine Orbit "The wine is gorgeously fruited and splendidly expressed, showing dark cherry, Black Doris plum, thyme, warm spice and cedar characters on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that’s succulent and beautifully rounded. It’s wonderfully harmonious with fleshy texture and elegant savoury complexity, making it fabulously drinkable. At its best: now to 2024. $34.99. www.powerhousewine.com. Jan 2020."
"I’m a Canterbury Lad and my mission is to deliver wines that are Powerhouse in every sense. Our wines must punch well above their weight and only serious bang for your buck will do! I decided that there are far too many wines around that promise way too much and deliver very little for far too many dollars. In my search for a great Central Pinot that ticks all of these boxes, I found the wine maker, Theo Coles, who had exactly what I was looking for. The result is this very first label from the Powerhouse Wine Co stable under the “Driven Snow” banner." - Jorn Dijkstra
