Decadently sweet fruited and richly textured. The density of the wine is counter balanced by bright acidity and supple tannins.
A blend of grapes harvested from our two special Central Otago vineyard sites. North burn brings structure and tension, while Calvert contributes the violet-like perfume and a focused generosity. With fragrant bramble and wild strawberry notes and hints of violets. The palate delivers an elegant core of concentrated damson and hedgerow fruit, underpinned by extremely fine tannins and a vibrant freshness. This is a sophisticated Pinot Noir with balance, clarity and a long, focused finish.
