Premium fruit parcels were hand-picked and selected by our Winemaker to craft this Single Vineyard wine that is a true representation of our boutique Central Otago vineyard.
This delightful Pinot Noir has fragrant aromas of raspberry, dried herb, black pepper, tobacco and hints of clove. With a juicy palate of red fruits, rich cherry, plum, dried herb and spice. The palate is well rounded with a nice mineral focus, medium tannins and a long complex finish.
Enjoy now or cellar for up to 10 years.
"Sweetly fruited and spicy at the same time, the wine shows dark cherry, roasted nut, game and earthy mushroom aromas on the nose. The palate is equally seductive with fleshy texture and fine tannins, wonderfully enhanced by ripe fruit intensity and savoury nuances. Delightfully framed by polished tannins, offering terrific drinking." Wine Orbit (5 Stars)

Pair this wine with roast lamb or lamb rack for a classic match that never fails to impress. The delicacy of this pinot noir results in an excellent match with stronger fish such as salmon and tuna. The bright powerful berry fruit nature also pairs well with game dishes including duck, rabbit and quail.
