100% Pinot Noir from the Te Muna Road vineyard, some 7 kms outside of the Martinborough township. The higher terrace comprises very old, stony clay infused soils which are perfect for Pinot Noir.
Fruit was hand-harvested and 85% destemmed. Fermentation took place in a combination of French oak cuves and open top stainless steel tanks. Indigenous fermentation was followed by maturation in French oak barriques.
Seductive aromas of dark cherry, dried rose petals, thyme and damp earth. Beautifully varietal, elegant and long on the palate. Medium weight red fruit richness and fine-grained tannins are drawn out long across the palate by acidity to create a finish which is savoury and dry.
