"Attractively fruited and complex at the same time, the wine offers dark berry flavours with nuances of toasted spice, olive, tar and almond. It's plump and fleshy with succulent fruit flavours, leading to a persistent, elegantly dry finish. At its best: now to 2025" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, Mar 2021

Ruby red. Aromas of dark cherry, dried thyme and black olive. A rich and fruity full-bodied palate with raspberries, black plum and integrated notes of coffee bean. A fine tannin structure with a long and toasty finish.

Predominantly selected from the Delta vineyard, located on the south side of Marlborough's Wairau Valley. The vineyard comprises of 27 hectares of Pinot Noir from selected Dijon clones planted in 2002. The vineyard's rich clay soil and elevation combined with Marlborough's warm days and cool nights, make this site ideal for producing top quality Pinot Noir.

During a cool evening, selected Pinot Noir clones were harvested from the vineyard and transported to the winery where they were kept in a cold soak for four days to extract maximum colour, flavour and tannin form the grapes.Fermented with a carefully selected yeast strain, the grapes were hand plunged up to eight times daily during the height of fermentation. The wine was then pressed equally into tank and seasoned French oak barriques and left to mature for nine months. Heather then selected her preferred barrels for the final blend of the Delta Pinot Noir 2020.

Food Pairing: Excellently paired with spring lamb and roasted root vegetables.

All the qualities of a Central Otago Pinot, but without the hefty price.
