Bouquet: Bright, lifted, red fruit driven with Marlborough's hallmark spiciness complimented by dried herb, smokey and meaty notes in the background.
Palate: A juicy and plush Pinot Noir with pure red berry flavours. The wines cleansing acidity and fine, soft tannins are evident, characteristic of Marlborough's clay based Southern Valley soils.
Food match: Duck, cervena, red meats and especially truffled venison and mushroom pie.
Cellaring: Seven to ten years
18 months in new and older French oak barrels
