100% Pinot Noir from Palliser's East Base, Clouston, Wharekauhau and Winery sites in Martinborough; with vine ages up to 18 years old.
Fruit was fully destemmed; indigenous yeast used, and fermented with approx 3% whole bunches, the wine spending typically on average 15 days on skins. Aged 14 months in 30% new French oak.
Elegant and fine with ethereal aromas of dark-red berry fruit at the core, and soft, dark herb notes and bright red floral fragrances, unfolding into a little spice and nutty oak. The palate has richly sweet and lusciously vibrant fruit flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruits, along with hints of herbs, spices and nutty oak, and lifted dark red florals. Well balanced with fine-grained flowery tannin extraction, and integrated lacy acidity.
