(From 2014 Vintage) These grapes are from some of our favorite cool-climate vineyards on New Zealand’s South Island. We’ve used a wide variety of clones and rootstock, along with a mixture of soils and microclimates to ensure a balance of flavour profiles and exceptional quality. This wine is enticingly aromatic showing notes of dark cherries and strawberries. Partially aged in French oak barrels for the alluring complexity of well integrated oak and fine silky tannins. Aged in a mixture of French oak barrels and tank for five months. Superb with herb-crusted lamb, mushroom risotto or all on its own.
(From «nv» Vintage) Color: Intensely dark ruby red. Aroma: Wonderful complexity of ripe dark fruits, hints of game, spice and toasty oak. Palate: A rich, full Pinot Noir with beautifully balanced fruit and smoky oak characteristics. It is mouthfilling with a silk tannin structure and oak influence add to a persistent finish.
