Central Otago, as a viticultural region, arguably more than any other New Zealand wine growing region, has rapidly gained international market and media credibility for producing Pinot Noir. Vines at Akarua, Bannockburn, were first planted in 1996 and further vineyard development has progressed in the intervening period.
100% Pinot Noir,whole bunch fermentation in temperature controlled vats. The cap is punched down twice daily to maximise extraction and texture in the finished wine. Post fermentation maceration lasts for 6 days.
100% French oak barrique maturation for 7 months. 10% new with the balance in older wood.
Bright cherry in colour, the nose is typically Central Otago with a core of juicy red berry fruit and uninhibited by heavy oak influence. Bright, lifted cherry aroma’s with lifted floral and violet notes. The palate is well defined Central Otago Pinot Noir exhibiting juicy red fruits. Light, soft tannins complement the savoury highlights and the finish is long and bright.
