This elegant Pinot Noir has lifted floral aromatics, with layers of red cherry, cassis and blueberry. The pure fruit flavours are balanced with subtle spice, savoury fruit tannins, texture and juicy acidity. 2021 was one of the earliest and shortest Marlborough vintages on record. The growing season was the third in a series of drought vintages, and the stress on the vines was compounded by a huge wind run. The combination of some early frost events and poor flowering resulted in lower yields and smaller bunches than usual. This, combined with the dry conditions, has meant that disease levels are incredibly low this year, resulting in pristine fruit with good concentration. The fruit for this was harvested from low-vigour clay terrace vineyards on March 11. The fruit was cold-soaked for five days prior to fermentation, a small portion was fermented as whole bunch. After fermentation, the must was pressed and the wine aged for ten months in French oak, including 12% of new oak.
