Premium Pinot Noir
A blend made from our three vineyards – Gibbston, Alexandra, and Redbank at Earnscleugh, this wine is a quintessential cool climate Pinot Noir. As in the vineyard, this wine is hand crafted using traditional methods and aged in small French oak barrels for 11 months, using a mix of older and new (30%) barrels.
As usual the 2008 vintage provided its fair share of challenges, the most notable being early frosts in Gibbston and late frosts in the Alexandra basin. But on the whole it pretty good season with excellent fruit set followed by near perfect weather during the growing season. This is undoubtedly our biggest crop to date which in time will give us a classic Central Otago Pinot – elegant, complex and well structured full of the typical spice and fruit.
Dark black fruit, spicy notes and dried herb aromas. This is a dense, dark brooding wine showing loads of texture, depth and persistence. This wine will benefit with bottle age. Approachable in its youth, it will mellow with age. The fruit was picked by different vineyard block and by clone. Each pick was fermented separately, with the final blending taking place prior to bottling.
