"Aged for 12 months in French oak barriques, 20% new, the 2010 Pinot Noir has a medium ruby-purple color and notes of black cherries and mulberries over tree bark, black pepper and dried Provence herbs. Medium bodied with very good flavor concentration, it’s well supported by crisp acidity and grainy tannins, finishing long and earthy. Drinking now, it should cellar through 2016." (10/11)
"Our 2010 Pinot Noir has delicious flavours of raspberry, strawberry and blackberry; a distinct underlying dark fruit cake character and hints of violets. The taste is all dark fruit cake and plum with hints of spice and a savoury, 'forest floor' aromas. It's full, complex and delicious on the palate; it will soften over the next 3-5 years to be at its most attractive drinking."
"The Pinot Noir grape is one of Marlborough Stars; the cool climate queen of red wine is a natural match for Marlborough's reliable cool dry vintage climate. The grapes typically show ripe berry fruit flavours - raspberry and strawberry; that distinctive 'Forrest floor' earthen aroma and fresh acidity. Our Pinot Noir grape is a complex amalgam of three different 'terroirs' - classic Wairau river valley stoney soils, southern valleys, Brancott aged clays and Northbank young stone/ clay mix. Each plot hand harvested, fermented in 2-3 ton lots hand plunged, skin contact post fermentation, gently pressed and then aged in 20/80 blend of new/old French oak barriques for 10 months."
