" Ripe, fruity, varietal and unctuous bouquet with aromas of dark red apple skin and plum, some cherry moments then sweet vanilla and sweet wood tones of oak. Quite complex yet very youthful still. On the palate - equally fruity and savoury with flavours of plums and dark cherry, some toasty barrel flavours, clove and vanilla moments and a fine savoury core. Balanced fine tannins and fresh acid line adding crispness and length. Youthful throughout the palate with a good length, balance and complexity. Nice wine. best drinking from 2021 through 2025." Cameron Douglas

Winemaker's notes

decor wave

Our low yielding Pinot Noir blocks were harvested at optimum ripeness. The parcels were cold macerated before being warmed and inoculated with selected yeasts. A fast, hot fermentation proceeded with delicate cap management to craft a wine with elegance and balance.

The parcels were gently pressed off after a short period of post ferment maceration to achieve the desired tannin balance. The wine was aged with French oak while undergoing malolactic fermentation. It was then blended, stabilised and filtered prior to bottling.

Vineyard

Our Seaview Vineyard is the most coastal vineyard in New Zealand and experiences some fairly harsh conditions as a result. It produces small, thick-skinned berries with intense flavours. In comparison, our Willow Flat Vineyard is further inland with reduced coastal influences, and creates a much sweeter fruit.
