100% Pinot Noir sourced from a number of low cropping vineyards from the southern valleys of the Wairau Plain, including the Omaka Valley and the mouth of the Waihopai Valley of Marlborough.
After harvest each batch was held cold for 5 days prior to fermentation. Cultured yeasts were used for the primary alcoholic fermentation, during which the must was hand plunged 6 times daily, up to 8 times daily during the height of fermentation. When dry each batch was pressed to tank, settled and then racked off gross lees to either stainless steel tanks or a mixture of new and older seasoned French oak. Underwent 100% malolactic fermentation before blending and bottling.
Ripe boysenberries and blackcurrants with notes of dark cacao and spice. The palate is dominated by ripe dark fruits with undertones of fresh ground coffee and warmed spice. Well balanced acidity with a fine tannin structure and a clean lingering finish.
