Mike’s Corofin range is named after the village in Co. Clare that his great-grandfather emigrated from in the 1920’s.

He makes his wines in a real Burgundian philosophy and style - aiming to showcase the special vineyard sites that the grapes are grown on.

The Settlement Vineyard is owned by Dog Point and is farmed organically. It faces north-east so it gets sunshine in the first half of the day.

The vineyard is planted to a reasonably high density for Marlborough - double the amount of vines per hectare than you’d get in a typical Sauvignon Blanc vineyard. More vines fighting for the same space means less fruit per vine, therefore more fruit intensity and what Mike calls ‘vineyard identity’.

The winemaking then is very gentle to preserve the vineyard character - it spends 14 months in old French oak before being bottled unfined and unfiltered to keep every last nuance and detail possible in the wine.

If you love fine Burgundy Pinot, then you have to give this a try.

Mike's great grandfather Marcus Joseph Paterson emigrated to New Zealand from Corofin Co. Clare in 1927.

So when Mike and wife Anna started Corofin, their own family business, they wanted to honour this history and special connection between his family and the land.

Lovely NZ pinot, on a par with the SA Tesselarsdal PN. hard to find burgundy of this quality/ price

Drank this back to back (with friends) with the Stepp Pinot Noir. A different class, although I think the 2022 Stepp is not as good as previous years

Brendan Whyte (Dublin)

This is a stunning pinot noir really well priced

Noel Kennedy (Lucan)

Really liked this wine and great value for money. Almost bricky red in colour and typical New World barnyard nose and sweet on the palate but a nice structure and fine tannins lift it above most NZ Pinot. Really good quality Pinot at a great price (92-93)

Sarah Rogers
