Product Description

This is the old Home Block Pinot Noir expanded to take in the neighbouring vineyard, which is owned by winemaker Sam Rose. A classic but deeper styled Marlborough nose showing only dried (not green) herbs, evolved red berry fruits, forest floor and light but fragrant French oak spice. Complex and far more interesting than the usual style of Pinot from this region. The palate is medium weighted with lovely texture and mouth feel. Savoury all the way, there are flavours of dried pink flowers, dark fruit spice, ‘sweet’ earthiness, and plum, blueberry and cooked rhubarb fruits. The tannins are super fine giving a lovely silkiness. It’s actually the flavours that are driving the strong savoury accent here. This will take very rich meat dishes in its stride, in fact it needs it.
