This succulent juicy Pinot Noir has aromas of strawberries and raspberries with floral undertones.
Bright garnet red in colour. Perfumed nose of fresh cherries, cinnamon and all spice with savoury undertones. Spicy tannins are matched with pure crushed red berries and dried herbs on the palate. Persistent flavours of tamarillo lead onto a lingering dry, mineral finish.
Sourced from a single vineyard in the new sub region of Ward Valley, southern Marlborough. Deep clay loam soils with traces of limestone. Hand picked and hand sorted, the grapes were gently de stemmed and then fermented in small open top cuvees and hand plunged 4 times per day. Very gently pressed, the wine was aged with French oak for 4 months prior to light filtration before bottling.
