Vineyards and Winemaking

This single vineyard expression of Marlborough Pinot Noir is grown on the southern side of the Awatere River, an old riverbed terrace that is sheltered from cooling mountain breezes. The Seddon vineyard terrace has a silty loam soil contributing the intensely perfumed aromatics. Spring of 2013 was bountiful, therefore careful attention to yield restrictions was applied to maintain a perfectly balanced vineyard. The 2014 summer was warm and dry allowing tannins to fully ripen, all fruit for this wine was harvested in March before the autumn rains.

Soils And Viticulture

Fruit set in the cool spring weather was lower than usual, resulting in the development of open bunches with small flavourful berries. From January onwards, Marlborough experienced a summer of the century, with a spell of long hot dry weather with moderately cool nights providing the perfect environment to ensure physiological and flavour ripeness whilst retaining

Stunningly elegant and fine, the wine shows red cherry, raspberry, floral, toasted nut and thyme characters, combined with silky-smooth palate that's seamlessly flowing and lingering. Wonderfully proportioned and harmonious with seductive complexity. 96 Points
