Nockies Palette Wines

In August 2017, Nockies palette expanded upon its original vision by purchasing Georgetown Vineyard, where the award-winning Pinot Noir and Pinot Rose grapes were harvested, in Central Otago, New Zealand.

The Georgetown Vineyard is situated at the Cromwell end of the Kawarau Gorge and sits on the site of the historic Georgetown. Georgetown’s Pinot Noir has an international reputation as one of the finest red grape varieties. The traditional Red Burgundies have been joined by other outstanding examples from the USA and New Zealand in particular. However, the grape is also responsible for making delicious fresh and vibrant Pinot Rosé that provide the drinker with aromas of red berries, apples & peaches. The wines tend to be a bright pink when the colour is pronounced, more so than Rosés made from other varieties, and make for striking wines perfect for warm summer afternoons.

Carrick Winery & Restaurant

There is magic in drinking a wine where it is made. As an awareness of place and seasonality contributes to our wine drinking pleasure, so it is with food. Carrick winery incorporates a cellar door and restaurant, (simply named Carrick), that overlooks the spectacular Bannockburn Inlet. The restaurant was opened in 2002 and has received many accolades. It is open daily for lunches and occasionally in the evening for special functions and by arrangement.

Our restaurant menus are created around fresh seasonal local produce and we are fortunate that we have access to some of New Zealand’s best game; exceptional fish and shell fish from our cold water southern seas; summer fruit, and local organic vegetables. Our chef uses these ingredients to make simple, healthy but sophisticated food, that, when matched with Carrick wines, provide a unique and authentic dining experience. For a more simple meal try our platters or treat yourself (as the Europeans do) to a special lunchtime dining experience, selecting small and large platters from our menu, spending the afternoon, eating, looking at the view and sharing a bottle of wine with friends.

If you wish to taste Carrick wines our knowledgeable staff will guide you.
