Description

"From their Raparua Vineyard, this is impressively complex on the nose showing spiced cherry, dark plum, dried herb, cedar and floral aromas. The palate is concentrated and elegant at the same time, offering wonderful fruit purity brilliantly enhanced by silky texture and deep savoury undertones. It is refined and engaging, wonderfully structured by fine, firm tannins" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2017

Misty Cove vintner, Andrew Bailey raises his glass to celebrate his cellar’s 2016 Limited Release of The Fifth Innings, his encore and salute to the timeless traditions of Marlborough Pinot Noir and the after match. Elegant complexity and deep concentration embody this fruit-forward and earth-driven delivery from Misty Cove’s Rapaura vineyard. Much like the hand-made craftsmanship of the finest willow blade, this Pinot Noir of red cherry and plum aroma is the only welcome drop for the cricketing tragic. This wine was a Misty Cove special release withonly 3400 bottles produced. Whether venison or duck, spectator or sportsman, opening The Fifth Innings has never been so appealing.

Food Pairing: We suggest pairing this wines elegant complexity to gamey red meats such as rabbit, duck or venison.
