Again, handpicked and wild fermented, includes some whole bunches. 30-40% new oak. Lovely lushness to this wine, that quintessential Marlborough plump middle. It’s a little raw on the finish, but I love the juicy fullness of this wine. It feels like real Pinot; no simpleton, with a power push of tannin through the finish. What you want in Marlborough Pinot. Best drinking 2017-2024.
Impressive red-cherry aromas precede great depth and structured, handy tannins that pull real flavors out of the wine and coat the palate. This holds fresh and rich darker cherries and red plums long into the finish. Regal pinot with soul and swagger.
