|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Our Single Vineyard wines are made from grapes grown at Auntsfield Estate. Each wine shows the distinctive characteristics of ripeness, texture and minerality - qualities unique to the ancient Greywacke rock and Loess clay soils of the vineyard. Pinot Noir holds a special place in our hearts. We grow the grapes and make this wine with particular care and attention. The resulting wines are distinctive for their lifted aroma. COLOUR: Deep ruby AROMA: Rich Black cherry and plum fruit is subtly lifted by layers of dark red florals and complex savoury aromas of dark chocolate, cigar box and olive tapenade. PALATE: The palate of this wine shows a rich silky texture, which is full and concentrated. Flavours of ripe berry fruit and dark plum fill the pallet. This fruit is supported by powerful yet fine polished tannins giving a plush yet silky texture with seamless length.
Dense and juicy, with plump blackberry and plum flavors, accented by a touch of black walnut liqueur and notes of Earl Grey tea. The terrific intensity lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2028. 1,000 cases made, 200 cases imported.
