This wine shows expressive dark cherry & plum aromas and flavours with notes of thyme, mocha and cinnamon spice. Matured in French Oak barrels, 33% new, for 10 months, the wine has fine tannins and an elegant, lengthy finish.

Rapaura Springs (pronounced Ra-para) is a unique oasis in the dry Marlborough landscape with natural underground springs providing a life source for the vines. This pure water enables the vineyards to produce outstanding fruit with minimal intervention. The logo represents the water of the multiple springs that flow from their stony aquifer.

The Limestone Terrace Vineyard, in the Awatere Valley sub-region of Marlborough, is spectacular and rugged. Using only the best parcels from this sub-region the Limestone Terrace Pinot Noir is a fine example of this wonderful variety. Limited by nature, elegant and pure.

Premium Pinot Noir grapes were hand harvested at optimal ripeness. A selection was whole bunch pressed and underwent wild fermentation to add complexity. Blended from 12 of the best barrels, this Pinot Noir was identified as a standout in the vintage and selected by our team as worthy of carrying a Select Parcel label.

A welcome increase of volume produced after the small 2015 vintage. In Marlborough, larger than average berry size is expected to emphasise thiols (passionfruit flavours) over methoxypyrazines (herbal flavours).

Perfectly paired with a rare fillet steak or mushroom risotto.
