CURRENT VINTAGE: 2020 Pahi Pinot Noir
The Pahi Vineyard is situated on Te Muna Road adjacent to the Escarpment Vineyard. Planted in 2003, the site possesses the same alluvial, free draining gravel soils which has made Martinborough famous. The fruit for this wine was hand-picked over two days with the final wine comprised of clones 114, 115, Cl5 and Abel, giving a diverse array of flavours and a unique expression. The fruit was open top fermented in traditional cuvees, using indigenous yeast and hand plunged just once a day, with a total vat time of 21 days. After pressing it was matured in 35% new French oak barriques for 16 months. Bottled without fining or filtration, promoting soft mouth feel and texture.
