  • THE BRIEF
  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • THE BRIEF
  • The Martinborough Terrace, where they grow our grapes, is a small but very special area of land located at the southern end of the North Island. Framed by the Ruamahanga and Huangarua Rivers which helped carve out the Terrace centuries ago. The land is a stony silt loam overlaying varying depths of ancient free draining river gravels.

    The climate is dry with frosts and strong winds challenging us at every turn but when the harvest comes all the hard work is more than worth it. This is an approachable, bright and lively Pinot Noir with beautiful juicy red fruits and good structure.

  • THE FINER DETAILS
  • Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘East Base’, ‘Clouston’, ‘Pinnacles’ and ‘Winery’ blocks along with a small portion of contracted Martinborough fruit, 95% indigenous yeast fermented with 5% whole clusters to 12.7% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 18% new oak.

    WHAT SHOULD YOU EXPECT?


    Colour: Light red colour with some depth and garnet hues on the rim. Aroma: The nose is soft, full and wellpacked with aromatic and fragrant aromas of red berry fruits entwined with dark herb and red floral notes, unfolding a little savoury earthiness with aeration. Palate: Medium-bodied, the palate is brisk and racy with lively fruit flavours of savoury red berry fruits melded with fresh, dark herbs with some red floral detail. The fruit forms a moderately deep and dense core, with supple tannins in support. The wine flows with good energy to a lingering, savoury red-fruited finish with herbal nuances. This is a brisk and racy Pinot Noir with moderately concentrated savoury red berry fruit, herband earthy detail with supple textures.
