Pinot Noir

Marlborough

2016
Winemakers: Tim Preston & Paul Dawick
Alcohol: 13.5%
Tasting Note

The grapes for this generous wine were grown in the Marlborough region, on low yielding vines. Perfect weather over harvest allowed the grapes to be picked at ideal ripeness and flavour profile

The grapes were gently crushed, and allowed to cold soak to extract important colour and flavour components. Fermentation proceeded with plunging for further colour, flavour and fine tannin extraction. The resulting wine was then sent to wood for ageing over seven months in quality French (58%) and American (42%) oak. The wine received a light egg white fining and was cross flow filtered prior to bottling on 13 March 2017 under screwcap closure.

Delightfully approachable, yet complex, this elegantly styled Pinot Noir exudes opulent blackberry and blackcurrant flavours intertwined with appealing leather and pepper spice notes. Harmonious in structure, it is an excellent match with salmon, lamb or pork dishes.
