This Marlborough Pinot Noir is fresh and vibrant with soft tannins and good length.

It has intense primary fruit characters of blackberry and bramble on the nose with a smoky, earthy undertone on the palate.

This is a warm, vibrant, well-structured Pinot.

Fruit was destemmed into open top fermenters and cold soaked at 5 degrees centigrade for 7 days.

The must was hand plunged three times daily before inoculation with selected yeast. The ferment lasted 6 days after which the fermenters were capped and left to rest for 10 days before the wine was gently pressed directly to French oak barrels.

The wine is characterized by a purity of fruit aromas, ripe tannins and intelligent use of oak.

The wine was then racked onto fine lees.

The grapes were harvested between 12 - 17 April 2009.

Serve with New Zealand lamb with grilled vine ripened tomatoes.
