Bright dark cherry red.  Dark cherry and fungal, forest floor aromas with subtle oak.  Smokey, leathery notes with complex fruit well integrated with toasty oak flavours. These flavours are enhanced by a acid-tannin balance that gives good length,making this an ideal food wine.

VINTAGE

Ideal weather conditions led to a harvest that started in early April. The season also provided the requisite large diurnal temperature fluctuations that maximise the varietal flavours of Marlborough Pinot Noir.

WINEMAKING

The fruit was de-stemmed without crushing to retain a percentage of whole berries in the ferment. Fermentation was carried out in small fermenters with twice daily gentle plunging of the cap to extract colour and tannins. Further maceration post-ferment and prior to pressing has
enhanced the palate with soft tannins. After malolactic fermentation the wine underwent a period of 12 month’s oak maturation in 30 percent new French oak barriques, prior to fining with egg whites to soften and round the palate.
