The Remarkable Wines cellar door recently moved from Bannockburn closer to the mountain range from which it takes its name.
Tucked away in a sheltered spot, the cellar door inhabits a characterful old corrugated-iron stables shed. The rustic tasting room doubles as a cafe, and there’s a furnished outdoor area.
Remarkable Wines was established by Richard Guthrey. Its first pinot noir, from the 2006 vintage, won a major international trophy.
Every year two single-vineyard pinot noirs are produced, from each of two sites, one in the Gibbston, the other in Bannockburn. Filling out the range are three whites: a Bannockburn riesling, a Gibbston pinot gris and a white blend (made from pinot gris, riesling and gewurztraminer), The Aromatics.
Our pick Try winemaker Claire Mulholland’s Gibbston pinot noir.
