Additional Info

From The Producer

The grapes for this Pinot Noir were grown in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys. The fruit was predominantly hand-picked over a three week period from mid March as optimum ripeness was reached in each block. At the winery a combination of traditional and modern winemaking techniques have been used in order to incorporate the benefits of both approaches. The fruit was all de-stemmed into small open top fermenters and cold soaked for between 5 and 10 days. Following this the juice was fermented with the indigenous yeast that arrived with the fruit from the vineyards. Hand plunging during fermentation ensured good extraction of colour and tannins. Following primary fermentation wine also underwent a full malolactic ferment. Portions of the blend remained on skins post fermentation, while others were pressed at dryness before being transferred to French oak barrels for maturation. The wine was bottled in March of 2020

Expert Reviews

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"This Pinot Noir is an intense little number with ripe mulberry and plum flavours. The palate is round and concentrated with the fruit balanced by earthy, savoury and spicy notes, suggesting a wine that will develop nicely over coming years. It has loads of supple, finely managed tannins and the finish is long, spicy and delicious." - Jules Taylor

Cameron Douglas MS

"Wonderfully fruited and gorgeously complex, the bouquet shows spiced cherry, dark plum, game, dark mushroom and toasted almond characters. The palate delivers excellent concentration and fleshy mouthfeel, enhanced by silky texture and savoury nuances. It is flavoursome and generous, while remaining elegant and classically structured. At its best: now to 2022." - Cameron Douglas MS

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
