Home Pinot Noir 2016

A dry mild winter meant a continuation of the drought in the north Canterbury region. Normally green hills were pale and drying off early except for early green shoots in hillside vineyards. Some last spring frost  lowered yield, but unseasonally heavy rainfall in January provided some reprieve from the drought.  The vines around the valley sprung to life pushing young shoot tips. Dry conditions returned and continued into late Autumn allowing gradual and even ripening of fruit with very little disease pressure

Despite the early season challenges vintage 2016 ended with balanced, ripe, and disease free fruit making harvest straight forward and efficient.

Deep ruby. Perfumed, alluring open and fresh berry fruits, earth, custard, sandalwood and lead. Supple sensual fruit on the palate with supporting tannin. Soft but structural, crisp and mineral. Salivating. Drink now to 2025
