      Tasting Notes
      The Pinot Noir grape is one of Marlborough’s stars; the cool climate queen of red wine is a natural match for Marlborough’s reliable cool dry vintage climate. The grapes typically show ripe berry fruit flavours – raspberry and strawberry; that distinctive ‘Forest floor” earthen aroma and fresh acidity.

      Our Pinot Noir grape is a complex amalgam of four different “terroirs”:- classic Wairau river valley stoney soils, southern valleys, Brancott aged clays, Northbank young stone/ clay mix and Awatere Valley complex seabed soils. Each plot was hand harvested, fermented in 2-3 ton lots with hand plunging, skin contacted post fermentation, gently pressed and then aged in 20/80 blend of new/old French oak barriques for 10 months.

      Delicious aromas of raspberry, strawberry and black Dawson cherry with hints of violets. The taste is all dark fruit cake and plum, with hints of spice and savoury, “forest floor” aromas. It’s full, complex and delicious on the palate! Great drinking now but your patience will be rewarded by cellaring for 5+ years.

      "Rich fruit tinged with cocoa and lavender, this wine is poised and cheerful. It has a slightly earthy nose underneath the pretty aromatics, with delicate cranberries and cherries on a sweet-savoury palate, then hints of coffee on the finish. 91 Points." (Decanter Magazine - New Zealand Pinot Noir Tasting, August 2016 - Comment on 2013 vintage)
