Description

TASTING NOTE
Bouquet: A ripe spectrum of flavours lead by dark stone fruit and evident spice aromas.

Palate: The palate is bold, with intense red and dark fruit. The use of whole bunch inclusion during fermentation adds a layer of dried herbs and floral notes. The wine has a rich and full palate structure, with even, fine grained tannins.

Food match: Duck and other game birds, red meats, mushroom dishes

Cellaring: Seven to ten years.

PINOT NOIR
A bright perfumed, supple expression of Marlborough pinot noir from clay hill slopes. Comprising six different pinot noir clones from vines dating back to 1983. Vines are cropped at 5 tonnes/ha (35hl/ha), hand harvested and hand sorted, prior to de-stemming (15% whole bunch included). The fruit is fermented in small stainless open top fermenters without pumping. Fermentation is conducted by indigenous yeasts over a period of 2-3 weeks prior to pressing into French oak barrels (40% new) for 18 months. Bottled without fining or filtration.
