7th Heaven Pinot Port is crafted from pinot noir grapes grown on our family’s small Bannockburn vineyard.
The production of our sparkling wine starts in Central Otago where our carefully handpicked pinot noir grapes are pressed and go through 100% malolactic fermentation by our winemaker Debra Cruickshank’s Bannockburn winery. From there the base wine is sent to the Le Brun family at No1 Family Estate in Marlborough and pioneers of Méthode Traditionelle in New Zealand for 40 years
Base Winemaker: Debra Cruickshank
Second Fermentation, Riddling & Degorgement: No1 Family Estate

Medium golden coloured wine with the palest pink hue and a tiny fine bead. Yummy fresh warm toast, green apple and lemon citrus aromas in the nose, while on the palate there’s a crisp, zingy acidity, ripe stone-fruit & citrus flavours, and a long dry finish – very elegant / classy bubbles. “Handpicked Pinot Noir grapes are pressed and go through 100% malolactic fermentation at Debra Cruickshank’s Bannockburn winery, the base wine then sent to No1 Family Estate in Marlborough for Secondary Fermentation, Riddling & Disgorgement – No wonder its so good – Highly recommend you try this.
