Marlborough Pinot Noir

From several vineyards throughout Marlborough comes this elegantly smooth Pinot Noir, displaying delicate spice, cherry and earthy notes.

Tasting Notes:
Strawberry and spice aromas with savoury dark cherry and earthy notes. Supple and bright flavours with cinnamon spice and raspberry notes.  Medium weighted and elegant with juicy red fruit lingering on the finish

Production Notes:
This wine is a blend of various parcels of fruit from vineyards in Marlborough. Fruit was harvested at optimum ripeness and fermented in open vats. After an extended period of maceration the various batches were drained off skins and portions put into new and old oak barriques. After several months the wines were assessed and blended.

Recommended Food:
It goes well with a stir-fry of cubed lamb and eggplant, also makes a good partner for a steak and mushroom pie.

1-5 years
