Bright appearance with a ruby red hue.
Lifted floral nose with raspberry and cherry aromas, with an abundance of savoury/earthy complexity. The palate is vibrant with tension and length, showing a nice mixture of bright fruit/herbal elements and a savoury structure that North Canterbury is renowned for.
The spring and early summer was cool with higher than expected rainfall resulting in good canopies and smaller crops. From Christmas through till harvest, we experienced very warm and settled weather which resulted in beautifully ripe, clean fruit.
Bright appearance with a deep crimson hue. Deep brooding nose of plum and blue fruits with lifted floral spicey notes. Full bodied Pinot Noir with ripe, rich fruits, mouth filling texture and round plush tannins giving the wine weight and power with a savoury moreish finish.
