Far out... What a wine! Beautiful.
About The Wine
This is a very impressive Pinot Noir from one of Marlborough's most respected artisan producers.
The Weaver's Pinot Noir block is planted at 5000 vines per hectare, extremely close plantings such as this force strain on each vine producing drastically less fruit but with vastly more intensity.
It's this sort of quality over quantity approach that has seen the Weavers become synonymous with some of Marlborough's finest offerings.
The 2015 of this wine received 95 points from Gary Walsh and offer great value in the context of premium NZ Pinot Noir.
Sam and Mandy Weaver established their biodynamic paradise in 1997 in between the Omaka and Waihopai valleys in Marlborough.
Their close-planted vineyard consists of only four varieties. They grow Sauvignon Blanc, Petit Manseng, Viognier, and Pinot Noir.
Their fruit is highly sought-after by other local vignerons. Where much of the region is given over to huge companies churning out unfathomable quantities of mass-produced Sauvignon Blanc, the Weavers have kept things small and premium.
A family business from the ground up, this is what Marlborough wines taste like with a real sense of place.
