The Pinot Noir comes from Marlborough's iconic vineyards, layered with upper layers of aged alluvial gravel and dense clay subsoils. By balancing drainage and water availability, this soil composition yields the best Marlborough Pinot Noir.
With over 30 years of experience, the carefully selected Pinot Noir vineyards are located in the southern Wairau Valley, including the very special Barracks Vineyard.
The wines were aged in French oak for 11 months, with 30% new wood.
The pinot noir fruit was all destemmed before being gravity fed into the open fermentation tanks. The grape skins were gently plunged with an average of 21 days of skin contact. After fermentation, the wines were aged in French oak for 11 months, with 30% new wood.
