Description

The fruit for this wine was hand-harvested in the cool Marlborough Autumn mornings.  Most of the fruit was de-stemmed and transferred to various open-top fermenting vats in the winery. The fruit was then left to cold soak for 4-6 days prior to fermentation. The fermentation occurred spontaneously with yeast native to the vineyard.  Extraction was done by hand-plunging (pigeage) 2-3 times daily to ensure gentle colour and flavour extraction.  The temperature was allowed to peak at 32°C. The wine was then pressed off as soon as it reached dryness and then racked to new (36%), 1 and 2-year old French oak barrels.  The heavy pressings were kept separate. The wine was left to mature in barrel and underwent natural malo-lactic fermentation in spring. After 10 months the wine was removed from barrel, blended and filtered before bottling.

Aroma / Bouquet: Lifted red cherries and raspberry with hints of floral notes, underlined with aniseed and cinnamon spice notes.

Palate: A medium-bodied wine with a silky, fine texture, this eloquent Pinot Noir displays notes of red and dark fruits.  These fruit flavours are balanced with subtle oak char and spice notes.

Cellaring: Will age well with careful cellaring for three to six years.

Food Match: Try this wine with game meats such as duck or venison.
