Marlborough Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir is a red grape which has found in New Zealand a home away from home. Intense, elegant and fruit-driven in style, Pinot Noir is an extremely food friendly wine which may exhibit an array of vibrant flavours including red fruit, plum, cherry, currant, often with notes of clove and spice.

Tasting Notes

An aromatic Pinot Noir with a lively personality, this wine expresses strawberries, raspberries and red cherries on the nose, the hallmarks of a classic Marlborough Pinot Noir. The ruby colour in the glass suggests juicy summer red fruits on the palate, intermingled with flavours of freshly roasted coffee beans and dark cocoa. Silky soft tannins and a hint of dried herbs linger on the finish.

Vineyards and Winemaking

Summer temperatures were unusually mild for Marlborough, regulated by cooler easterly breezes and light cloud cover. Intermittent autumn rains slowed ripening which meant our harvest plans had to be flexible whilst we waited for dry weather periods. All 2017 harvest decisions were made in the vineyard with the aim to showcase ripe Pinot Noir fruit with classic Marlborough flavours. The Private Bin Pinot Noir is a blend from specifically chosen vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau valleys. The varying soil types, meso-climates offer different tannin structures, flavours and aromas to the wine.
