A softly textured delight, perfect food wine. Marlborough in a glass. Grapes were sourced from two Wairau Valley vineyards to make this wine. Much of the fruit was from the Delta Hill vineyard, a small hillside vineyard close planted at over double the normal NZ vine density. The Delta Hill is one of the highest altitude vineyards in Marlborough and is cooler than the valley floor. Planted with eight different clones of Pinot Noir on various low vigour rootstock resulting in small berries, low yield per vine and concentrated flavours. The balance of fruit came from within the Wairau Valley from a vineyard on the southern side, a small vineyard dry farmed with a mixture of older clones of Pinot Noir.
Tasting Note: Pinot Noir displays all the elegance of the variety, with supple cherry and plum fruits over a light dry mouth feel.
