Product Description

Moderately dark ruby-red with slight purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is fragrant and perfumed with high-toned red florals and dark-red cherry and berry fruit, with piquant dark herbs and nuances of whole bunch stalk elements. This is beautifully intense and fine in penetration. Medium to medium-full bodied, the fruit is vibrantly rich and sweet, with dark-red cherry and berry flavours and subtle notes of dark herbs and an array of red and violet florals. The mouthfeel is refined, possessing excellent freshness and vitality, with fresh acidity and very fine-grained tannin extraction. The wine flows with very good energy leading to a long, sustained aromatic finish of cherries and berries with fragrant florals. This is a beautifully elegant Pinot Noir built on dark-red cherry and berry fruit with fragrant aromatics and subtle herb and whole bunch nuances on a refined palate. Match with poultry dishes over the next 7-8+ years. Clone 5 and 115 from the Waitaki Valley, vines planted in 2001, fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 22 days on skins and aged 11 months in 29% new French oak. 630 dozen made. 19.5/20 Raymond Chan
