Sourced from the Southern Valleys with some fruit from the Awatere Valley. This Pinot Noir went through 100% stainless steel fermentation and was hand plunged. This brought out the perfumed berry fruit as well as increasing the silky mouthfeel of the wine. The wine was then aged for six months with French oak. Aromas of cherry cola, violets, star anise and pink peppercorns. Black forest chocolate notes, tobacco leaf, Danish liquorice and spice. Berry fruit flavours are supported by grainy tannins and a juicy finish.

There's an autumnal feel about this wine: wet leaves over damp earth, the smoky remnants of a campfire off in the distance. Combine that with notes of ripe cranberries, strawberries, florals and white pepper spice, and the result is an appealing nose indeed. It's light to medium bodied, laced with savory, stalky tannins, an earthy core and a cranberry tang right through to the end.
