Quite a gutsy, full-flavoured pinot noir.
About the Wine
Corofin love to make wines that tell a story about Marlborough; they set out to make wines that reflect the passion and dedication of the grape growers in the vineyards, maintaining the integrity and uniqueness of fruit from each site.
The Wrekin vineyard is a small organically certified site in Brancott Valley and this resulting Pinot is a gutsier expression than their Settlement vineyard Pinot.
Dark berry fruits, dark florals with a hint of a spice, this is a serious and seductive Pinot with a lot of personality.
About Meltwater/ Corofin
Corofin is the ongoing project from the hugely likeable Mike Paterson, who is dedicated to making the best single vineyards wines in Marlborough, in a region where that is a true rarity.
According to Mike - "our ambition with all Corofin wines is to transmit a sense of place first, over fruit intensity or winemaking ambition. We have chosen to work with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay being the two varietals we believe will amplify the transparent expression we seek from the land.
We are excited to be working with trusted and admired friends as growers. Their vineyards are all located in Marlborough's southern valleys and we hope our little Pinot Project will shine a light on some pretty special spots in the region our family calls home."
