Deep Down Pinot Noir 2021 (6 Bottles) Marlborough, New Zealand

by Wines By Cellars 0 orders



Intense red and black cherries, mixed spice and rich earthy complexities. Luscious black and red cherries mingle with 5 spice and fresh herbs. A beautifully weighted palate with gently smothering tannins and fine acidity enhancing its length. Such a gluggable yet complex natural wine that will undoubtedly treat you kindly. Drink now with a beetroot, goats cheese and thyme tart or duck neck sausage.

Certified Organic. Vegan Friendly.

A youthful red to purple, the nose has black cherry and plum fruit with some violets and graphite in the fold. The palate is medium bodied with a continuation of black cherry, tannins take on a black tea like character with just enough fruit derived spice to give a veneer of richness on the mid palate. There is great balance to finish with fruit, acid and oak all meshing well. An incredible young wine in the context of how well this should age.




We are Deep Down Wines, a boutique Marlborough wine company and collaboration of two New Zealand families. Founded by Clive Dougall, who was Winemaker at Seresin Estate for 12 years, and Peter Lorimer, who promoted boutique New Zealand brands around the globe with his company the New Zealand Wine Portfolio, Deep Down is about honest wines forged with intuition and heart.A Collaboration of Art and ConscienceOur wines are small batch, low inter- vention, delicious and approachable, produced from land farmed with care, vineyards managed with respect, and a team dedicated to honest wine from an incredible region.

Clive and Peter met at an opportune time – they were both looking to start a new project to celebrate distinct and delicious wines within an ethical and transparent business model.It was a collaboration of art and conscience, based on a mutual love of organics, complex and balanced low-intervention wines, and affection for the ocean and a life well lived.Their outlook, ambitions and skillsets blended perfectly to form Deep Down Wines, focused on delicious and thought-provoking wines that cut through in a world of noise.

Deep Down is about trusting your gut feeling and intuition, and the name reflects the duo’s decision to do just that – to do what they believe in, knowing that working organically and ethically is the only way forward.Deep Down also speaks of geographical roots, deep down in the unique soils of a region known for its terroir, in a country known for its purity.

Clive has spent 14 years producing distinct yet classic wines full of personality, each with the signature of the land and season it springs from. Deep Down Wines display the same detail and balance, borne of experience, understanding and intuition, with ‘hands-off’ winemaking that protects the expression of the fruit, rather than obscuring it with additions.
