This is an elegant and complex style of Pinot Noir. Very varietal and typical of Marlborough Pinot Noir, it exhibits flavours of red fruits, plum, cherry and currants with notes of clove and spice and a subtle oak influence. Its elegance and underlying acidity make it very food friendly.
Enjoy with a wide range of game dishes, red meats, duck, pork and tuna.
This wine is a regional blend from selected vineyard sites in both the Wairau and Awatere valleys. The vineyards are trained on a VSP trellis and intensively managed to produce low yields of excellent quality fruit. Shoot thinning, bunch thinning and leaf plucking are all employed in the pursuit of quality.
