Lifted notes of cassis and ripe dark berries with toasty, mocha aromas. The juicy, ripe, red fruit flavours lead into a supple palate, which is plush and full with finely balanced tannin. Beautifully matched with lamb and venison. This wine is also suitable for vegetarians, vegans and gluten free diets.
Marlborough experienced a mild-to-cool spring period, which ensured that the vines naturally produced lighter then average yields. These mild temperatures then extended into the summer months, coupled with an unseasonal period of rain, which ultimately alleviated the drought conditions that were experienced over the past two years. The Pinot Noir was harvested in excellent condition and the resulting wine is showing the wonderful hallmarks that Marlborough is known for - lifted fruit flavours in the berry spectrum balanced with earthy savoury notes, vibrancy, purity and structure.
