Wine Notes

From our Mairehau block , the grapes were hand harvested and destemmed to open fermenters. 5-7 days of pre-ferment maceration led to a wild yeast ferment. Total maceration time was 5-6 weeks then pressing and barreling down. In barrel for approx. 15 months before bottling.

Tasting Notes

"A nose of mulberries and kirsch with underlying game and balsamic hints. Medium-bodied with a decent core of warm cherry flavors and earthy / meaty flavors, it has an uplifting tang in the medium to long finish."  Lisa Perotti Brown - The Wine Advocate, October 2013

Food Match

The supple richness of New Zealand Pinot Noir complements a range of savoury dishes.  With Winter on the way, try it alongside game birds such as quail, turkey, and duck; with a fillet of New Zealand salmon; or equally with pork, veal, lamb or venison.
