A savoury Pinot Noir style with a lively personality, this wine expresses hints of red cherries on the nose, along with baking spices such as clove and cinnamon. On the palate, fruit flavours of cranberries and goji berries are intermingled with freshly roasted coffee beans and soft cocoa-like tannins.
The Private Bin Pinot Noir is a blend from specially chosen vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys. The varying soil types, meso-climates offer different tannin structures, flavours and aromas to the wine.
Wines aged in a mixture of stainless steel tank for fresh fruit expression, and seasoned French barriques for 10 months, adding texture and savoury complexity. All wines completed a natural malolactic fermentation.
