Paul Henry has released his second vintage of Pinot Noir with Invivo, after the first vintage sold out in record time last year.

Invivo co-founder Tim Lightbourne says the first release of Paul Henry’s Own Pinot Noir was so successful that people who missed out have contacted the company on a daily basis. So to satisfy demand, the number of bottles of the second vintage has trebled to 24,000.

Lightbourne says Henry’s second stint at the blending bench has created a unique mix that features Central Otago Pinot Noir grapes from four of Invivo’s top growers.

He was again assisted from the boys at Invivo, known for producing Graham Norton’s Own wines, and spearheading New Zealand’s first equity crowdfunded winery.

“My last wine was world class but I wanted more Paul Henry in this wine, and it doesn’t disappoint,” says Henry. “This is a very smooth Pinot Noir – as good as the last one, but better. You could be filing for bankruptcy and if you had a glass of this wine in your hand, you’d have to pause and think that life’s not too bad.”

Glengarry’s server crashed trying to cope with the unprecedented demand for the first vintage after its release in November. Glengarry General Manager Liz Wheadon says it was Glengarry’s most successful launch of an individual wine, ever.
