Pinot Noir

Region:

Marlborough

Recommended Food:

This award winning wine goes well with a stir-fry of cubed lamb and eggplant, and also makes a good partner for a steak and mushroom pie.

Recommended Cellaring:

0-6 years

Production Notes:

The fruit was harvested in excellent condition from our Cowslip Valley Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley (80%) and our Headwaters Vineyard near Renwick in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley (20%). The grapes were crushed to open top vats and, following a period of cold soaking, fermented with frequent plunging of the cap. After a period on skins post primary ferment the wine was moved to 225L oak barriques to undergo malolactic fermentation and mature for 11 months. After that the wine was blended, lightly fined and bottled in mid March.
