Third Leaf

Erewhon


Erewhon


Pinot Noir from the far reaches of "No Where"

The name Erewhon is an anagram for “No Where.” It is a reference to the remote vineyards and rugged landscape of New Zealand from which our Pinot Noir is harvested.  Erewhon is made by winemaker and master blender, CP Lin.  The wine is 100% Pinot Noir, blended from vineyards across several regions on the South Island of New Zealand.  By blending, we are able to bring together the best possible fruit from Waipara and Central Otago to create an amazing wine that showcases what bold, but balanced New Zealand Pinot Noir has to offer.

The entire Annona collection is made from fruit that is organically farmed and harvested by hand.
