Description

"The wine is sweetly fragrant on the nose showing strawberry tart, plum, vanilla and toasted almond characters with subtle game and floral complexity. The palate delivers succulent mouthfeel and smooth texture, well supported by juicy fruit flavours and elegant savoury undertones, finishing long and silky" Wine Orbit

This Mystery Pinot Noir showcases what the variety can do in Marlborough. Its soft, savoury tannin structure is typical of Wairau Valley, which creates fruit-forward wines with delicious ripe red strawberries and cherries. 

Tastes of Wild flower, bright red fruit and spice jump from the glass. The palate is long, showing balance between the fine tannin structure and acid backbone.

Fruit was harvested from the second week of March until early April. Multiple picks across vineyard blocks means the wine showcases the spectrum of flavour nuance that the Wairau Valley brings to Marlborough Pinot Noir. In at winery fruit was destemmed and transferred to tank. It was then cold soaked for a week, before naturally warming and fermenting on skins for up to 15 days. Ferments peaked between 25°C and 30°C. Wine was transferred to French oak and malolactic fermentation was started in spring. The wine received a light fining, before a gentle filtration prior to bottling.

Food Pairing: Grilled lamb cutlets with roast potatoes and seasonal vegetables.
