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.
Moderately dense, elegant pinot noir with red cherry, floral, fresh herb and spicy oak flavours. A high energy wine that reflects the cooler growing conditions of the Awatere Valley. Softly structured with fine, ripe tannins that nicely balance a touch of fruit sweetness. 95 pointsBob Campbell MW
