CURRENT VINTAGE: 2021 Te Rehua Pinot Noir
This wine was grown on the Barton Vineyard, Huangarua Road, Martinborough from vines planted in the 1990’s. A combination of deep alluvial gravels from the Martinborough Terraces and an assemblage of many clones to produce a classic example of New Zealand Pinot Noir. Hand harvested fruit was open top fermented using indigenous yeasts in a traditional wooden cuvee. It was hand plunged once a day, with a total vat time of 22 days. After pressing it was matured in 37% new French oak barriques for 20 months. Bottled without fining or filtration, promoting soft mouth feel and texture.
