Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Our Estate Pinot Noir is the mainstay of our Pinot Noir range. Stylistically it's a nod towards Old Europe, with more reserve, layers and complexity than typical New Zealand pinots. A wine of delicate proportions and nuance, it's more about restraint than power. A sleek and elegant texture yields to flavours more floral and earth-driven than fruit-heavy.

We handpick small quantities of bunches early in the morning while the fruit is cold to allow for a gradual introduction to the winemaking process. Batches are allowed to warm up and begin wild fermentation naturally in small lots. We plunge entirely by hand while the batches are on skins before a gentle pressing into select French oak barrels. Bottled without fining or filtration."


4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"Estate-grown and hand-harvested, the 2015 vintage was matured in French oak casks (25 per cent new). Still youthful, it is deeply coloured, sweet-fruited and supple, with mouthfilling body, a rich surge of cherry, spice and nut flavours, fine-grained tannins, and obvious potential. Open 2018 onwards."
