"Delicately aromatic pinot noir with maraschino cherry, tutti fruity, floral, plum and cherry flavours. A deliciously accessible wine in a charming and very drinkable style" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Aug 2018

This elegant wine is deep purple with purple hues. Lifted aromas of fragrant red cherry, raspberry, violets, leather and caramel with hints of savoury and sweet spice highlight the nose. The palate is inviting with a lush, juicy entry of sweet redcurrants, black cherry, blueberries and chocolate with leather and cloves. Medium bodied with elegant fine grained tannins, complex and concentrated with a persistent red fruit finish.

The fruit (clones 5, 777, 113, 115 & Abel) was hand harvested from 22 March 2016 until 5 April 2016 and was destemmed into open top fermenters before being inoculated with selected wine yeasts to carry out the fermentation. The wine was aged in French Oak barriques for 12 months, of which 25% was new oak.

Beautifully crafted wine from a fantastic site in a good vintage for Central Otago. This represents extremely good value, and it what's more, it's been perfectly aged at the time of purchase.
