Central Otago wines are fast gaining an international reputation for their quality and finesse. Our label - Carrick - is truly a label for the region: the wines demonstrate the grace, the taste, the distinctive style of Central Otago. Our winery looks directly out to the rugged Carrick mountain range in the west, a stunning place.
Cairnmuir was planted in 1994 in Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, and Pinot Gris. It lies on a promontory, bounded by Lake Dunstan to the north and west, and the Bannockburn Inlet to the south. The vineyard is a mixture of gravels and sand, glistening with silica.
Carrick, a name associated with the Bannockburn region, is represented on our label by the Carrick Bend knot. The knot also depicts the bringing together of the Central Otago terroir, and our careful viticultural and winemaking practices.
Carrick is now fully organic. The grapes are grown organically and the wines are made organically. After a minimum of a three-year period where the vineyards have been farmed organically and the winemaking practices meet NZ organic standards, Carrick has been audited by an independent auditing authority, Biogrow NZ, and has been successful in meeting the rigorous standards for organic grape and wine production.
