    Winemaker's Notes:

    Anchored in an elegant structure, the tannins sit alongside a mid-palate boasting a supple and very intense core of fruit. Aromatically the nose shows delicate red berry fruits while taking in violet and forest floor nuances before finishing with an infusion of darker cherry notes. High toned fruit forms a gateway into a revealing palate and very persistent finish. The palate is rich and unusually mouth filling for an Awatere wine while retaining the taut structure and minerality that typifies the sub region's fruit. Enjoy with lamb loin or seared tuna as the wine unfurls and opens for hours in the glass…

    Critical Acclaim:

    This Pinot Noir has macerated black cherries and bilberry on the lively nose. Sweet ripe blackberry dominating the palate that has chewy tannins, lacks some finesse towards the finish but good weight and I think this should meld together with time.
