Bright, ruby red in the glass. This delicious Pinot Noir is perfumed with floral aromatics, such as balanced spiced cherry, follwed by silky milk chocolate tannins framing a ripe cherry palate. Finishing with subtle oak spice and balanced acidity.
The fruit for this wine was harvested primarily from the Eyrie vineyard, nestled in the clay rich soils of the Waihopai Valley. A blend of three clones with elements of whole bunch berries
added to the fermentation for enhanced aromatics. Hand plunged daily, before maturing in new and seasoned French oak barriques.
