Fresh raspberries, lavender, and crushed cherry tomatoes followed by kola nuts and cinnamon stick. Medium-bodied, refreshing acidity and silky tannins. A hint of stony minerality at the end. Fragrant and harmonious wine. Drink or hold.

The 2022 Pinot Noir leads with abundant strawberries and raspberries, cranberries and sarsaparilla. In the mouth, the wine is spicy and luscious at once, with the typical lean austerity that Martinborough delivers so well, with the fleshy red berries endemic to the variety. Nicely played. 13.5% alcohol, sealed under screw cap. 2024 – 2030

Winemaker Notes

The grapes were 10% whole bunch, 90% destemmed with a combination of French oak cuves and open-top stainless steel tanks. The wine was matured for 9 months, also matured in French oak barriques.

Bright cherry with crimson hue. Aromatic dark cherry melds with dried herbs and subtle oak char. The wine is vibrant across the palate with svelte red fruits and velvety tannins finishing savoury and dry. Cellar it 3 to 5 years from vintage. Drink with pan seared and roasted duck leg, porcini pasta.
