      Tasting Notes and Description
      Renowned sailors, the Butterworth Family are the new custodians of Julicher Vineyard, planted in the iconic soils of Te Muna. All of our wines are Estate produced, made with a light touch by winemaker and biotechnologist, Martin Bell.

      Lifted aromatics of wild raspberry and blackberry, while cinnamon, nutmeg spice and an earthiness jump from the glass. The palate is spicy, with great length and beautifully delicate tannins.

      This is an unfined pure expression of our vineyard’s best Pinot Noir vines. Blended together to create a distinctive, complete and satisfying wine.

      Winemakers note: "The grapes were destemmed, then gently fermented and macerated in up to 2.2T lots for at least 20 to 25 days. The fermenters were drained and pressed to French oak barriques, with topping occurring every week with the wines on full ferment yeast lees. The barrels were selected and
      combined for a rest period. A light filtration before bottling ensures the stability of the wine."

      Colour: Rich ruby red.

      Aroma: Lifted aromatic rose petal, wild raspberry and blackberry, cinnamon and nutmeg spice jump from the glass with lavender and earthiness following.

      Palate: The palate is spicy, with great length. The Te Muna Road minerality drives through the middle of the palate, showcasing the delicate ripe gypsum tannins that were gently extracted from the skins during ferment.

      "Appealing, elegant pinot noir with red fruits, spice, wood-smoke, fresh herbs and subtle floral flavours. A high-energy wine with a backbone of bright, fresh acidity and fine, peppery tannins. A special wine from a special place.
      94 points."
