100% Pinot Noir from Marlborough, specifically the Babich Cowslip Valley Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley, and the Headwaters Vineyard near Renwick in the Wairau Valley.
Fruit was crushed to open top vats and following a period of cold soaking, fermented with frequent plunging of the cap. After a period on skins post primary ferment it was moved to oak barriques to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature for 10 months. Blended, lightly fined and bottled.
A spicy hit with dark sweet undertones. The palate has sweet fruits and dark earthy elements concentrated and focused with viscosity and volume. Cocoa lingers on.
