100% organic Pinot Noir from Urlar's Gladstone vineyard in the Wairarapa region, utilising both organic and biodynamic principles.
Fruit was harvested according to flavour and skin ripeness. Each clone was fermented separately in a mixture of traditional oak cuves and stainless steel vats after a period of cold soak to enhance colour extraction. The winemaking style encourages fruit complexity, texture and balance; once these elements are in unison the wine is pressed off and matured in 40% new French oak barriques for 10 months. Unfined and unfiltered.
An elegant wine of dark red berry fruits, dried herbs and spicy savoury notes. There are complex layers of spice, earthy cedar and forest floor. Elegantly concentrated with fine tannins, a silky texture and a lingering intensity of dark chocolate.
