Southern Valleys, Marlborough
The gently rolling hills of the Southern Valleys in Marlborough offer up a Pinot Noir of distinction. The savory components highlight perfectly the ripe, crunchy dark red fruits. The aromas express black cherry and pomegranate, with forest floor, violet, and chai spice. Partial whole cluster fruit highlights the minerality at the core with pink peppercorn and crushed rock.
POINTS OF INTEREST
Sourced primarily from a single estate vineyard in the Southern Valleys of Marlborough comes this vibrant Pinot Noir made with partial whole cluster. The hillside vineyard generates more ripeness in this cool valley, and 3-6 months in French oak barrels cultivates nuance in the delicate nature of the fruit. David's experiences working in prestigious wineries in Willamette, California, and France help guide his team to fine turn these flavors.
