Taka K Bedford Estate Pinot Noir 2022

An exceptionally complex and savoury single vineyard pinot noir from the stony soils of North Canterbury.


An exceptionally complex and savoury single vineyard pinot noir from the stony soils of North Canterbury.

Light ruby with bright pink reflections, this wine exhibits profound complexity despite its bright and youthful nature, defined by notes of white mushroom, dark cherry and freshly-turned earth.

Though it is a relatively young vineyard, Bedford Estate is planted with top three pinot noir clones: Abel, Dijon 777 and Dijon 943. Grapes were harvested and fermented by clone to unleash the full potential of each clone before they were blended and bottled. This method gave rich depth and complexity to the wine.

While studying Viticulture and Oenology at Lincoln University, Japanese-born Takahiro Koyama quickly developed a passion for riesling, pinot noir and chardonnay. He quickly secured vintages at the historic Weingut Keller in the Rheinhessen, where the elusive secrets of riesling were taught. Continuing his education, Takahiro travelled to California where he quickly impressed the prodigious Jim Clendenen at Au Bon Climat. Takahiro remained there for two vintages, studying the art of crafting chardonnay and pinot noir. Returning home to New Zealand, Takahiro, always seeking a mentor to guide him, was quickly enamoured with Mountford Estate's CP Lin, a winemaker of considerable renown who, while legally blind, built a reputation for crafting some of the countries best chardonnay and pinot noir.

Now Takahiro is out to pave his own way, founding Taka K in 2023, it is safe to say that these wines carry with them all of the learnings and profound expertise of one of the finest winemakers in New Zealand.
