Winemaker Tim Adams has been scouting around finding small parcels of 'hidden treasures'. His Little X Hawkes Bay Syrah has been a real discovery and now we have this gem from the Upper Moutere. Originally destined for a label with very high ambitions until shareholder difficulties meant it had to be sold off. Tim's 'insider' information led him to this wine and we reckon you'll be as impressed as we are by the wine. Dark and savoury with dark cherry, gamey/forest floor flavours. Generous and velvety textured. 


Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"Big Bold and Brash. Our single vineyard Upper Moutere Organic Pinot Noir exhibits all the hallmarks of a Pinot Noir grown in the right site, in a great season and touched by sympathetic winemaking.

Made with minimal inputs and handling. Handpicked fruit was left to soak until the wild ferment kicked off, 30% whole bunches added fragrance and structure. Bramble, licorice and spices all dance on the nose. Dense and weighty this follows through to the palate where the tannin from whole bunches and oak provide a frame for the dark fruits, spice and earthy notes. Long and full it will continue to reward for years to come."


Cameron Douglas MS, June 2019 (2015 Vintage)
"Nice bouquet, attractive and quite alluring with baking spices, red berry fruits and old rose aromas. Clove then vanilla, toasty wood layer, fresh and dried cherry, dried strawberry and plum. Dry with a firm youthful palate of textures – fine tannins, chalky, some drier red berry fruit flavours, floral and organic wild berry fruits, slightly elevated alcohol (easily tamed with food), fairly lengthy finish, well made. Overall this is a very nice wine with a particular personality and pinosity. Drink now and through 2022."
