100% Pinot Noir from vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau valleys of Marlborough.
Aged in a mixture of stainless steel tank for fresh fruit expression, and seasoned French barriques for 10 months, adding texture and savoury complexity. All wines completed a natural malolactic fermentation.
Perfumed aromas of sweet red cherry and bright berry fruits - hallmarks of Marlborough Pinot Noir - abound on the nose. The palate displays soft rounded tannins with flavours of baking spices such as cinnamon and dried herbs.
