Offers ripe plum aromas with a touch of spice. The juicy ripe red fruit flavours lead into a supple, soft tannin finish. Pinot Noir - 100%
Food Matching: Beautifully matched with lamb dishes.
Vineyard: Clear, sunny days and cool nights produced the perfect ripening conditions leading up to a successful 2014 harvest. Apart from a limited period of unseasonal rain, the region remained very dry right throughout the summer months and into early autumn. All of our Pinot Noir blocks were in excellent condition right up until the time of harvest and resulting wines are showing the wonderful typicity that our Marlborough vineyards are known for – aromatic fruit flavours in the red berry spectrum, vibrancy, purity and structure.
Vinification: The low yielding Pinot Noir blocks were harvested at optimum ripeness. The parcels were cold macerated at 6 – 8 degrees for around five days before being warmed and inoculated with selected yeasts. A fast, hot fermentation proceeded with regular hand plunging and the use of pulse air which has helped to craft a wine with elegance and balance. The parcels were gently pressed off after fermentation. A portion of the parcels spent some time in third year French oak barrels while undergoing malolactic fermentation. The wine was then stabilised, blended and filtered prior to bottling.
