75cl bottle.

“The wine is impressively fruited and beautifully fragrant on the nose showing dark plum, spiced cherry, subtle oak, mushroom and floral characters. It is concentrated and wonderfully weighted on the palate, offering power and grace, well structured by loads of fine, polished tannins. At its best: now to 2022” Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019

Specially selected parcels of grapes were handpicked from six vineyards before being hand sorted. The juice was left on skins and carefully monitored. This attention and care has created a Pinot Noir with bright cherry and currant aromas overlaid with complex bramble, spice and oak.

This limited release Small Batch collection offers the wine drinker hand crafted wines from selected sites throughout Marlborough’s acclaimed Wairau and Southern Valleys.

Harmonious, spicy and deep wine. Complex and elegant with minerality on palate and balanced acidity. Juicy and lingering finish. – Panel Chair: Angela Mount | Co-Chair: Tim Atkin MW
