Urlar Pinot Noir 2016

100% organic Pinot Noir from Urlar's Gladstone vineyard in the Wairarapa region. Both organic and biodynamic principles are utilised.

Fruit was hand-picked according to flavour and skin ripeness. Each clone was fermented separately in a mixture of traditional oak cuves and stainless steel vats after undergoing a period of cold soak to enhance colour extraction. Once these elements are in unison the wine is pressed off and matured in 20% new French oak barriques. Gently fined but not filtered.

Winemaker's Comments

Elegant dark red berry fruits, dried herbs, lifted red floral aromas and subtle savoury notes. The fruit is complexed by layers of whole bunch nuances, undergrowth, spices and earthy cedar. Stylishly concentrated with fine tannins and a silky texture.
