Velvety Pinor Noir – Marlborough 2016
WINEMAKING Destemmed without crushing, our Pinot Noir grapes were soaked with their skins for 14 days total to absorb the rich colours into the juice. Transferred to open top
tanks, the wine was hand plunged, retaining delicate flavour qualities in the wine. Fermentation peaked at 32 degrees to extract maximum colour and flavour. We aged portions of this wine in oak barriques and oak cuvées to blend some light oak in to the final palate. The result is a smooth and luscious red wine with lifted notes of red berries and floral nuances, closing with a soft finish – a beautifully aromatic and approachable style.
COLOUR Medium red with purple hues.
AROMA & TASTE We’ve called this Pinot Noir Velvety because it glides smoothly and softly on the palate from start to finish. An elegant style with abundant flavours of dark cherry, plum and spice.
PAIRING Superb with your favourite red meat dish, blue cheese or dark chocolate.
