About the Wine
From the talented Mike and Anna Paterson at Corofin comes Meltwater. The wines under the this label are designed to be great value, delicious wines that are fun to drink.
This Pinot certainly is all of those things - it's light, crisp and spicy; a red fruited crunchy little Pinot Noir with plenty of charisma.
It's an incredibly approachable wine that exemplifies what the Marlborough region has to offer. The perfect way to get familiar with Pinot from this part of New Zealand.
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."
