Tasting Notes

A bright crimson hue in the glass this South Island Pinot Noir has alluring aromas of intense cherry, cassis and violet notes. A full flavoured and concentrated wine, flavours of ripe red berries and plum are supported with fine, silky tannins and balanced oak that lead to a very long, elegant finish.

Vinification: After being carefully harvested the grapes for this wine are delivered to our modern winery located in Marlborough’s Awatere Valley. Batch fermented in small open-top vessels, the grapes undergo a 5 day cold-soak before being inoculated with select strains of yeast. Fermentation is carried out at warm temperatures, after which the grapes have an extended post fermentation maceration time on skins before the being pressed into French oak barriques. Left over the winter, the wine then goes through natural malolactic fermentation in spring when the temperatures warm again. Blending took place in early 2014, once blended the wine was held in the winery and allowed to mature before a late bottling in March 2015.
Food Pairing: Fatty fishes like Salmon or Tuna and gamey meats like lamb or venison.
