The wine is sweetly fruited and fragrant on the nose showing spiced cherry, strawberry, game and mushroom characters with subtle nutty complexity.
The palate is succulent and smooth with ripe berry flavours together with elegant savoury nuances, backed by polished tannins.
The grapes were harvested and then fermented in small open top cuvees and hand plunged 4 times per day. Very gently pressed, the wine was aged with a mix of new and old French oak for 4 months prior to light filtration before bottling.
“Packed with fruit flavour with a light oak influence, this is a great example of a value for money New Zealand Pinot Noir. Also great served chilled from the fridge”
