Pinot Noir is harvested from Central Otago vineyards along the south side of Kawarau River, clones 5, 6 and 10/5, Dijon 113 and 115, 667 and 777, all selected on the basis of intense varietal expression. Grapes are all destemmed into fermenters for three or more weeks, as temperatures peak at 29C to 30C. Batches are plunged daily during the initial macerations and twice daily throughout the course of vinification. Upon completion, parcels are pressed off to French oak barrel for ten months on gross sedimentery lees and malolactic ferments during the following spring, racked out of barrel in mid summer and treated to light filtration for bottling.
Deep ruby colour. A meaty wine with a seductive entry, vibrant and fruit filled with a perfumed intensity. A lovely mix of red and black berries with beguiling complexity and fine integration gained from the spiced, aromatic oak. Persistence of sensual fruit with raspberry ripple creaminess and a savoury bite. Tannins rise gracefully out of the middle palate, in fine balance with the wine's acidity and fruit, to produce a long fruit driven finish.
