Corofin’s Settlement Vineyard is planted on the slopes of the Omaka Valley in Marlborough. It is owned by Marlborough’s Dog Point winery and managed by viticulturist Nigel Sowman and wine maker Mike Paterson.
The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented in stainless steel tanks before pressing and ageing in 2 and 3 year old oak for 13 months. It was bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Medium ruby in appearance the nose is full of ripe fruit with hints of spice and a touch of smoke. On the palate, the wine has warmth and richness reflecting the clay-rich soils of the vineyard. A combination of juicy red and black fruit flavours are supported by an elegant natural acidity giving the wine poise and freshness.
