Pinot Noir 2014

A cool climate grape, Pinot Noir is particularly suited to the Marlborough region. The aging of our vines and the greater understanding we gain as growers has enabled us to further develop our Pinot Noir style each year and this 2013 vintage is no exception, continuing our aim of developing our own distinctive style.

Tasting Notes

Deep red appearance with aromas of red cherries, rasberries and violets. Rich flavor with subtle hints of smoky oak and bright berry flavors on the palate.

Food Pairing

This Pinot Noir is concentrated and powerful and deserves a little bit of bottle aging before enjoying with rich flavoursome food.
