COLOUR: Bright cherry red

NOSE: Aromas of dark cherry and plum supported by a background of toasty oak

PALATE: This blend from Waipara is richly flavoured and aromatic and delivers elegant, earthy Pinot flavours complemented by fine-grained tannins and well balanced subtle oak flavours. The palate is full but soft with great length of flavour and finishes dry with perfect weight and mouthfeel

REGION: 100% Waipara

VINTAGE CONDITIONS: 2016 was a great vintage for Pinot. Crops were balanced, summer was moderate and autumn was long and dry

WINEMAKING: Traditional Burgundian methods were used for vinification and elevage. A proportion of the whole bunch was placed at the bottom of the vats, with de-stemmed berries on top. One week cold soak was followed by a natural fermentation during which time the floating cap of skins was plunged twice daily. After fermentation, the wine was tasted daily to determine the day of press. Total cuvaison was around 3 weeks. It was gently pressed pneumatically then aged in French oak for 18 months on yeast lees. The malolactic fermentation occurred naturally in spring. The result is a rich, ripe, full-bodied wine with the typical regional characters of chocolate, cherry, plum, and spice
