A great result for Coal Pit Wines winning Elite Gold at the 2015 Air New Zealand wine awards for its Tiwha Pinot Noir Central Otago 2014.

This small vineyard and winery is tucked up in the hills 30 minutes drive from downtown Queenstown. The wines can usually be found in local wine shops – Arrowtown Wines and The Winery in Queenstown.

After 2012 and 2013 producing stellar vintages in Central Otago it looks like 2014 is also going to deliver more great results.
