Description

Beautifully fragrant red berry and floral aromas combine with flavours of cherry, spice with earthy undertones on a finely textured palate. Enjoyable in its youth and will continue to gain complexity with time.

This Pinot Noir from the 2017 vintage is a blend of premium vineyards in the in the southern Wairau Valley (86%) and Awatere Valley (14%) of Marlborough. The unique mesoclimates in these valleys, combined with an unwavering attention to detail in the vineyards, consistently produces fruit of the highest quality.

Parcels of grapes were harvested and cold soaked at 10°C between five and ten days before the onset of fermentation. Ferments were hand plunged, allowing gentle extraction of flavour and aroma compounds. Some batches were hot fermented to contribute density, structure and savoury complexity to the final wine, while others were fermented at lower temperatures to emphasise fruit characters, purity and elegance. The young wines were pressed and run to French barrique (12% new and balance seasoned) where malolactic fermentation took place in spring. Extended maturation on lees has added depth and complexity to the final wine. Bottled 27th June 2018.

Food Pairing: Poultry, game and pork.

Not bad. A bit dry for my liking.
