(From 2011 Vintage) Medium deep ruby-purple color, the 2011 Pinot Noir displays vibrant black cherry, raspberry and pomegranate notes over cinnamon, toast and violets. Medium to full-bodied, it is a generous wine with lively natural acid and a low to medium level soft tannins.
(From 2009 Vintage) It's not just the grinding winds from the west or the imposing presence of Tapuae-O-Uenuku, the towering peak that looms over Marlborough's Awatere Valley. It's not just the deep, rocky soils formed millions of years ago by relentless glaciers that molded the landscape. It's not just the arid climate marked by sundrenched days and cold nights. It's the combination of all those things together that shape the inimitable character, flavors and textures of Vavasour wines.
