Scores

"Darker in color and flavors than the Left Hand, the 2018 Right Hand Pinot Noir, crafted by Paddy Borthwick, offers black cherry and plum fruit accented by gentle mocha shadings. It's medium to full-bodied and seems slightly deeper and sturdier than the Left Hand, with velvety tannins on the long finish."
92 points, Joe Czerwinski, Wine Adovcate

"Attractively pure and focused red cherries with a spicy background layer, leading to a palate that has super fine, sleek and delicately muscular tannin that builds to a gently coffee-laced finish. Lots to like here."
92 points, James Suckling

ProducerBorthwick Vineyards

It took nearly 10 years for Paddy Borthwick to convert part of his family’s sheep and cattle station in Wairarapa, in the south of New Zealand’s North Island, into a wine estate. He was convinced that an old, stony river terrace with free-draining alluvial soil and a unique micro-climate was perfect for growing premium wine grapes. After years of studying and winemaking experiences abroad, Paddy Borthwick returned to Wairarapa and began planting vines in 1996. A firm believer in sustainable agriculture, and with a relatively hands-off approach in the vineyard and winery, he crafts lively, tense and incredibly precise wines.
