The Cellar Selection Pinot Noir is a blend of selected vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys of Marlborough. These vineyards are meticulously managed to ensure that the most intensely flavoured and healthy fruit is obtained. An array of Pinot Noir clones were used to provide a selection of blending options. This coupled with timely practices such as leaf plucking and careful water management has produced fruit of intense colour, flavour and ripeness.
A perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherries, plums and spice notes. Fruit driven and elegant, with long layers of flavour, full-bodied and well-balanced with fine, grainy tannins. This wine is concentrated and rich &ndash: an elegant Pinot Noir with finesse and complexity. This wine can be enjoyed now but with careful cellaring will continue to develop for another five to eight years.
Best served with red and white meats including lamb, beef, venison, duck, rabbit and wild game.
