Winemaker Notes

100% Martinborough Pinot Noir, grown on the alluvial gravel terraces for which the district has become famous.

The season was exceptionally warm allowing high quality, fully ripe fruit to be harvested early with brilliant ripe cherry/plum flavours. A full-bodied style with great backbone and a long lingering finish. An immediately accessible wine, which will improve over the next 2 years. Enjoy with full flavoured fish dishes, lamb or vegetarian dishes.

Not particularly complex but distinctly likeable wine and an excellent pinot value, with good depth of fruit and a spicy sweetness on the back end.
