The deep garnet red color reflects the depth of fragrance. Ripe, dark red berry and stone fruit aromas abound and are highlighted with complex, spicy oak highlights and savory nuances. The palate is deceptively mellow and continues the fruit themes while adding chocolate and mocha smoothness to the melange of fleshy stone fruit flavors. Savory complexity and spice add breadth to the mid palate while smooth velvety tannins provide a seamless balance with the rich fruit concentration.
Patrick Materman focuses on Brancott Estate vineyards for this wine, looking mostly to the hills of the southern Wairau Valley for fruit. It's bright and spicy, a fat pinot with tannins that carry the scent of dried roses and way clay. Pour it with braised duck.
