Single Vineyard winemaking and Pinot Noir go hand in hand; such is the variety's transparency for translating site into taste.The vivid hues and flavours of Central Otago are contrasted with the savoury, brooding characters of Martinborough in our stable of single vineyard Pinot Noirs. This tempermental grape demands utmost sensitivity and care in the cellar.
Our unrivalled Hawkes Bay based winery and quality obsessed winemaking team are essential components of this programme.
Full purple colour. Brooding aromatics of black cherry and musky plum, with liquorice and floral notes. Dark berry fruit, tar, and spice flavours dominate the rich, full palate that has a fine core of central tannin and bright acidity giving a distinctive velvety texture and persistence on the palate.
