100% Pinot Noir from the Seddon Vineyard nestled on the southern bank of Marlborough's Awatere River.
The grapes were destemmed and then fermented in an open top fermenter. The wine was matured in fine French oak barrels (30% new) for 16 months. Minimal egg white fining and filtration took place before bottling.
Utilising gentle handling, the resulting wine is an intriguing, concentrated and complex Pinot Noir displaying both purity and subtle power. With a lifted bouquet comprising mature red cherries, dark plum and characteristic floral aromas, the wine displays powerful layers of fruit. The palate is refined with fine grainy tannins and an alluring silky texture, finishing with persistence and purity.
