Wairau River Estate Pinot Noir
Our style of our Estate Pinot Noir is bright raspberries and red cherries combined with savoury oak (from spending 9 months in French barriques) making it extremely approachable, bright and easy drinking. This grapes are picked in the cool of the morning to retain the vibrancy we get from our estate vineyards. Any red meat goes well with this wine, or try with a a cheeseboard!LEARN MORE

Picking began earlier than normal in the middle of March and concluded in the first week of April. Increased attention to detail from the viticulture team ensured that the grapes achieved optimal acid balance and sugar ripeness, as well as physiological ripeness. This has resulted in clean elegant wines, that show great concentration and poise from a challenging vintage.
Flowering commenced in the first week of December. During this period the region experienced higher than average rainfall limiting the potential yields. January and February were some of the warmest months on record culminating in one of the earliest harvests seen in the region. Picking began in the first week of March and concluded in the first week of April resulting in wines of depth and flavour.
The punchy fruit in this wine pairs beautifully with the flavours in a thai beef salad
