Our 2018 Cellar Selection Marlborough Pinot Noir has subtle

Vineyard
The Pinot Noir fruit for this wine originates from a diverse
range of vineyard sites in both the Awatere and Wairau
Valleys in Marlborough with soil types ranging from windblown silts to deeper clays. The 2018 growing season started
with excellent spring and a strong ?owering period which was
followed by a long spell of hot weather with regular rainfall
events through the summer months. With ample soil
moisture, our harvest started earlier than the previous two
vintages, luckily the cooler autumn weather helped retain
natural acidities as the season progressed.
Winemaking
Fruit is harvested at night during in cooler temperatures and
then destemmed and transferred to open-top stainless steel
tanks for 3-4 days of cold soaking to extract aromatics. A
mixture of indigenous and cultured yeasts are used with
ferments, peaking at 32-34°c to extract the desired colour and tannins. After fermentation, the
wine spent 10 months in a mixture of new and seasoned French oak barriques on full lees to add
palate weight and texture.
