Winemaker Notes

This Pinot Noir is sourced from our Frasca’s Lane Vineyard in Victoria’s cool climate King Valley. Aromas of sweet red berry fruit with lifted game, herb and all spice notes. Rich and ripe flavours of red berries and spice with savoury, earthy tones and supple tannins. Enjoy with your favourite duck dish or soy and ginger glazed salmon.

About the Producer

Nugan Estate is a premium producer of estate grown wine based in Griffith, New South Wales.

It is part of the Nugan Group, which was founded in 1940 on fruit and vegetable packing and expanded in the 1970s into juice production – later becoming one of the largest exporters of niche juice products to Asia. This success resulted in our CEO, Michelle Nugan, being recognised as a Telstra Business Woman of the Year and Australian Export Hero.

In 1993 Nugan Group further diversified its operations planting vineyards and selling fruit under contract. From there, winemaking was a natural progression.

Today Nugan Estate owns 590 hectares of vineyards in Australia’s finest wine growing regions of Riverina, King Valley and McLaren Vale – making it the 18th largest vineyard holders in Australia. In addition, Nugan Estate sources premium quality grape from the renowned Coonawarra region.

Family operated by Michelle, Matthew and Tiffany Nugan, Nugan Estate is one of Australia’s Top 20 Wine Exporters and is complemented by a premium wine portfolio, extra virgin olive oil and the award winning Griffith restaurant, Michelin.

WineChump Notes

For a sub-ten-dollar Pinot, Cookoothama kicks, well, average Pinot's in the behind.  In the same vein as Red Bicyclette, which also runs under $10, Cookathama Pinot Noir delivers a good, value-based offering.
