Our wines

Pinot Noir 2014


2014 was a vintage that varied widely in Central Otago, but we were happy with the quality of our fruit. Similar in both style and flavour to the 2012, Pinot Noir 2014 is an elegant wine, rich and warm with raspberry, red fruits and plum giving an aromatic and perfumed nose. Depth of fruit, along with good structure and balance promise a wine that will just get better with age. Made in a traditional manner utilising hand plunging and French oak maturation. Drinking well now, cellar 5-8 years and serve at a cool room temperature after opening and allowing to breathe..

Pinot Gris 2015


Very aromatic and full of flavour, with excellent body and texture. The signature peach, nectarine and pear flavours of the site are fresh and delicious with a tropical finish. Bone-dry, crisp and clean, this is a scrumptious wine and will cellar well up to 5 years. Serve lightly chilled.

More about our wine


The vineyard is now producing at  maximum capacity.  Controlling that capacity to produce the quality we are seeking is the main aim of the viticulture.

Most of our crop is contracted to Mt Difficulty winery, but our desire to extend the quality achieved in the vineyard through to a finished wine led to the Gate 20 Two brand, with the aim of creating first class wines of distinction. Viticultural expertise, our particular site’s unique climate and soils, and the experience and finesse of our winemaker are a great base from which to achieve this result. We seek to produce exceptional wines which will always have a limited release. Grapes for Gate 20 Two are from selected vines. Even on a small vineyard soil, slope and clone type combine to produce distinct flavours from particular blocks. The wines made will reflect that terroir.

It’s pretty much a family affair on our vineyard. Our viticulture is ably managed and directed by James Dicey, our winemaker is Matt Dicey, and we do as much of the work towards achieving quality as we can ourselves. The Dicey family have a longstanding relationship with Bannockburn and extensive knowledge of it’s various terroirs. They have been an integral part in the development of this region. We all aim to produce intense rich flavours from vines that are managed for low yield and high quality harvests.
