This wine was grown on the Barton Vineyard, Huangarua Road, Martinborough from vines 21 years old.

A combination of deep alluvial gravels which the Martinborough Terraces are renowned for and a blend of many clones grown in a very sheltered spot always rewards us with a classic example of New World Pinot Noir.

It was open topped fermented using indigenous yeasts in traditional wooded cuvees, hand plunged every 12 hours, with a total vat time of 25 days. After pressing it was matured in 30% new French oak barriques for 12 months. It was fined using a minimum of egg whites to protect the flavours and aid brightness in the glass without filtering, promoting soft mouth feel and texture.

It has a unique site derived complexity combined with black cherry/plum fruit flavours.

It will continue to develop for up to 10 years and will always be a wonderful counterpart to any game food.
