Description

Red berry and black cherry aromas combine with smoky vanilla, oaky notes and a hint of spice. The palate is round and generous with lovely bright berry, cherry flavours and a touch of gentle, sweet vanilla. This wine has lovely weight and length, offering a delicious balance of power and elegance.
100% Pinot Noir
ABV 14%

This wine is sourced from two Waihopai Valley vineyards and the Tilly’s Block on Paynters Road. These vineyards are all within the Southern valleys sub-region where clay soils and low rain fall produce excellent Pinot. The final blend was comprised of clone 5, 667, 115 and 777. The vines are cropped at low levels which requires careful pruning, canopy management and fruit-thinning.  The vines are carefully nurtured to ensure perfect ripeness together with concentrated flavours that echo the varietal and the place it was grown. 

The fruit was harvested into open-top fermenters for a three to six-day cold maceration before the warm, alcoholic fermentation. The cap of skins that form on top was punched down by hand, three times a day, to encourage maximum flavour and colour. The wine was then left on skins for between seven and 14-days post ferment, before pressing to a mixture of French oak barriques (224 litres) and puncheons (500 litres) of which 25% were new. After ten months maturation, the best clones and barrels were selected for this wine. 

Food Match: Soft and supple, this wine is lovely with red meat, as well as full flavoured chicken and pork dishes and game. Ideal with chargrilled foods, roasted vegetables and any earthy flavours such as beans and lentils. Loves toasted spices such as cumin, star anise, paprika and herbs like oregano, thyme and sage. 

Drinks Business Global Pinot Noir Masters 2024 – GOLD
“New Zealand as a whole performed extremely well in this year’s Pinot Noir Masters, but if there’s one region where elegant reds are reliably good, it is Marlborough. This part of the country may be lagging in reputation behind Martinborough and Central Otago as a source of fine Pinot, but Marlborough certainly delivers when it comes to quality for the price”. Patrick Schmitt MW, Global Wine Masters.
