Description

  • Wild cherry
  • Silky tannins
  • Toasted spice
  • Elegant style

"Sweetly fruited and fabulously fragrant, the wine shows dark cherry, Black Doris plum, floral, vanilla and roasted nut aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate that's wonderfully weighted and expansive. It's flavoursome and supple with excellent fruit intensity and elegant complexity, making it immensely appealing. At its best: now to 2024" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2020

"Many classic Otago Pinot Noir aromas with ripe raspberry and dark cherry, a savoury undergrowth layer and smoky oak with some brown spices. On the palate - equally classic with flavours of brown spices and wood smoke, red berries and a mineral savoury thyme and dried herb. Youthful with firm tannins and medium+ acidity with a lengthy even and persistent finish. Well made with best drinking from early 2021 through 2025" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier, May 2020

An intense, deep red in the glass, this wine has lifted aromas of wild cherry opening up to more savoury and elegant floral notes. A powerful yet elegant Pinot Noir showcasing bright cherry and red fruits underlined by ripe and silky tannins. The palate combines acidity and roundness giving texture and very good length to the wine, finishing with toasted and spicy notes.

Central Otago experienced some extreme conditions during the 2019 vintage. There was the wet spring and early summer followed by much warmer summer temperatures from late December. Frosts put the vineyard managers on notice at both the start and the end of the season. Yields were down due to the wetter conditions during flowering and this resulted in excellent concentration and beautiful fruit flavours with intense colour.

The fruit was fermented in small single vineyard and clone parcels in traditional open top fermenters. Hand plunging was carried out once or twice daily for the entire maceration period (22 days). After pressing the wine was aged in French oak barrels where it went through malolactic fermentation. No fining was required, only a gentle coarse filtration just prior to bottling.

Best from 2021 and expected to continue to age well for 7-10 years from vintage in good storage conditions.

Food Pairing: Pinot Noir can be enjoyed with an extraordinary variety of dishes. This wine is best suited to full flavoured dishes such as venison with savoury sauces, roast duck or a pork loin served with potatoes and herbs.
