CURRENT VINTAGE: 2022 NOIR Pinot Noir
The Noir label brings together 35 years of wine making experience, creating a soft, bright, fruit forward wine which can be enjoyed immediately or will cellar successfully for a number of years. 100% Martinborough fruit, that has been open top fermented using indigenous yeast. After an average vat time of 20 days the wine was pressed off and aged in predominately older French barriques for 11 months.
Bottled without fining or filtration, the resulting wine is a blend of 34 individual parcels. Structure and texture sit perfectly with ripe fruit flavours and gentle tannins that combine with intriguing complexity.
Enjoy with many types of cuisines or cellar confidently for 5+ years.
