CeresBuy from this producer
AboutCeres is a Central Otago wine company owned by one of the NZ industries pioneering wine families - The Dicey's.
Brothers Matt and James and their father Robin, have a passion for focussed hand crafted wines that reflect the Bannockburn region.
The Ceres wines come from four Bannockburn vineyards owned by the family. The wines are consistently awarded medals for quality with their biggest accolade being the 2013 IWSC Bouchard Findlayson trophy for the best Pinot Noir in the World.
Matt Dicey is the wine maker, with brother James and father Robin the grape growers. The vineyard sites the grapes are grown on are starting to develop very individual characteristics and a single vineyard wine series will be released shortly. Their first wine was a Pinot Noir from Inlet Vineyard in 2005 and from 2006 to date the wine has included Black Rabbit Vineyard fruit. These two sites complement each other - Inlet provides the aromatic finesse while Black Rabbit the structure and dark fruit. Black Rabbit is also the source of the Riesling - the 300m year old Schist base provides crisp clean mineral characters with delicate fruit and depth.
