Description

  • Ripe fruit
  • Stewed rhubarb
  • Black Doris plum
  • Plush tannins

"Bright and youthfully charming, the inviting bouquet shows Black Doris plum, sweet cherry, floral and subtle spice aromas, leading to a juicy palate that’s supple and rounded. It’s pristine and flavoursome with velvety tannins, making it delightfully appealing. At its best: now to 2023" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Jan 2020

With dark purple hues, this savoury Pinot Noir releases lifted ripe fruit and glazed cherry aromas with hints of smoke, boysenberry, stewed rhubarb and star anise. The palate is full of dark fruit flavours that fade to savoury notes. Soft acidity and plush tannins contribute to a glossy mouth feel and a smooth, slightly peppery finish.

The continental Central Otago climate is one of extremes – the fiercely cold nights and long, warm summer days allow the black queen to display pure, vibrant fruit. From vineyards in Alexandra and Cromwell, the fruit was handpicked from a mixture of traditional Pinot Noir clones 777, 115, Abel and 667. The wine was hand plunged and 20% whole bunches added back to the ferment. The wine was then matured with French oak for 4 months.

Food Pairing: Pair with crispy duck pancakes, pulled pork and char-grilled steak or venison.
