New Zealand is now acknowledged as one of the few countries to have successfully come to grips with this fickle, but supremely aristocratic grape variety. A combination of dry and moderate climates gives near perfect cool climate growing conditions and assists with the intense varietal characters in Marlborough grapes.
This wine puts the NOIR into Pinot; a fine combination of dark cherries and red fruit abound. This is a fruit focused and velvety wine with rich flavours and soft tannins. Lean meats such as veal, venison or turkey, are a great match.

Winery Tasting Notes
Bright red with purple and crimson notes
An enticingly aromatic wine showing notes of dark cherries and strawberries with the alluring complexity of well integrated oak
Vibrant, fresh fruit flavours underpinned by nuances of sweet, smoky oak. Good firm tannins give the wine length and weight. You can savour the wine long after it has left your palate.
Very approachable and enjoyable now, but you can cellar up to 5 years with confidence.
Ideal with lamb or pork chops. Suited to most red meats and exceptionally good as a wine to enjoy all on its own!
