A bright, ruby hued wine with aromas of black cherry, violets and savoury spice on the nose. A fleshy palate with notes of plum and spice, silky tannins and a firm finish.

The Seaview Vineyard in the Awatere Valley is exposed to some of the toughest growing conditions in Marlborough; high sunshine and wind, cool nights and low rainfall which produces a smaller, thicker skinned berry with intense fruit flavours. This wine is sourced from two different locations in the Seaview Vineyard and both are a mixture of Dijon clones 777 and 667. One site, that was picked on the 1st of April is our flattest and one of the most sheltered parts of the vineyard. It is only 2m above sea level and is 1km away from the ocean. The other location was picked on the 14th of April and it is an exposed ridge, 150m above sea level that drops down a north facing slope to a sheltered gully. The unique micro climates within the block ensure low yields which consistently produces Pinot Noir with good structure and flavour.

The two parcels were picked two weeks apart, when the fruit was showing perfect ripeness and balanced fruit flavours. The parcels were cold macerated at 6–8 degrees for 5 days before being warmed and inoculated with selected yeast. A fast, hot fermentation proceeded with regular hand plunging to craft a wine with elegance and structure. Post primary fermentation the parcels were gently pressed off, settled for 24 hours then racked off heavy lees and aged in a mixture of large format French oak cuves and barriques. The wine remained in oak for 9 months and was then stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

The Classics - Lamb & Duck. However this wine is also fine enough to pair with white meats and some fish.
