Sourced from several specifically chosen low cropping vineyards from several sub-regions in Marlborough, including the Omaka Valley and the lower Waihopai Valley. Each block of fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness in the cool of the evening. At the winery each batch was held cold for four to five days prior to ferment to help extract maximum flavour and to enhance colour stability. A mixture of indigenous and cultured yeasts were used to carry out the primary alcoholic fermentation during which the fermenting must was hand plunged up to six times daily. At dryness each batch was pressed to tank and then racked off gross lees to either stainless steel tanks or a mixture of new and seasoned French oak. The wine then underwent malolactic fermentation and was aged for eight months in barrel before being blended and prepared for bottling.
Bright ruby in colour. Lifted notes of raspberry, blackberries and cherries are complemented by subtle savoury notes. A luscious medium-bodied Pinot Noir with a palate showing blackberry and boysenberry with hints of raspberry and redcurrant. This wine has a soft, full palate, well-balanced acidity and supple tannins. A mixture of new and seasoned French oak provide rich, savoury notes on the palate with a full, lingering finish. Perfect for drinking immediately this Pinot Noir will mature into a fuller, more complex wine with careful cellaring for up to five years from vintage date.
