An appealing wine with impressive purity and power.
About the Wine
The Pinot Noir vines in Black Estate's Home vineyard were planted back in 1994, and have been farmed organically and biodynamically since 2010 - finally becoming certified in 2017.
The resulting wine is one that is effortlessly enticing - it's bright and vibrant, with extreme drinkability and a seductive elegance.
Nicholas Brown, winemaker at Black Estate, has a minimalist approach to his wines and this one truly shows that sometimes, less is more. It's a beautiful drop from a very beautiful part of the world. Pinot lovers, you'll want to try this one - trust us.
About Black Estate
Black Estate was founded in Waipara in 1993 when Russell Black planted 8 hectares of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In 2007, Pen Naish and her winemaker husband, Nicholas Brown, took over - and it's been expanding ever since, now with 24 hectares across three vineyards.
They use organic and biodynamic farming (certified with BioGro) to really focus on the life and environment of the vineyard, as well as the health and quality of all things within it - the soils, vines and fruits. They use a hands-off, minimalistic approach to their winemaking to really allow each of their exclusively single vineyard wines to really showcase each site, allowing the final product to express its environment in a pure form.
