Our Artisan Noir explores a different approach to Martinborough Pinot Noir. Unrestricted by tradition, we make this wine with a focus on minimal intervention, low sulphur additions, and without filtration. The resulting wine is fruit-driven with savoury and spicy notes.

The grapes are 100% grown in Martinborough, on the alluvial gravel terrace. 


100% Martinborough hand-harvested fruit has been open-top-fermented. Extended time on skins, barrel-aged, and bottled without filtration. Structure and texture sit perfectly with ripe fruit flavours and combine with intriguing complexity.
