2015 Wairau River Reserve Pinot Noir

2015 Wairau River Reserve Pinot Noir




An array of dark fruits entwined with layers of dark chocolate, leather and spice. This complexity continues through the palate, revealing generous fruit weight in combination with fine ripe tannins, resulting in a refined texture and persistent finish. Bottled unfined and unfiltered to retain subtle complexities, some natural sedimentation may occur.



Produced from the Home Block and the Pilot Block. Grapes were carefully hand harvested cool in the early morning and returned to the winery in small bins. Fermentation took place in 4,000 litre open top French oak cuves, with only delicate hand plunging used to extract colour and subtle tannins. The skins were gently pressed off, and the wine aged in French oak barriques for a minimum of 12 months prior to final blending and analysis.
