Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019
Exhibits notes of sweet dark cherry, violets and smoky-spice. Full and plush, yet lively, with flavours of cedar and red liquorice balanced with silky tannins.
Yealands Estate's Single Vineyard Pinot Noir possesses vibrant sweet red fruits and smoky spice.
Fruit for this vintage was sourced from two different locations in Yealand's Seaview Vineyard in Marlborough's Awatere Valley, grown in one of the flattest and most sheltered parts. The two parcels were picked one week apart when the fruit was showing perfect ripeness and balanced fruit flavours. The wine was aged in French oak cuves and barriques for 9 months.
Under Peter Yealand, Yealands Wines is committed to becoming the most sustainable wine estate in New Zealand and the world in its extensive vineyard holdings across the Seaview Peninsula, Awatere Valley, and the broader Marlborough region. The estate works with many non-profit organisations to help build a more sustainable future.
