Waipara Hills Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

Dark brooding aromas of cherry, chocolate and spice. Elegantly structured with generous fruit flavours on the palate. A rich young wine with complex fruit and enticing earthy characters, that is generous as a young wine and will also reward futher cellaring.

VINTAGE CONDITIONS

The early season frost caused some concern but thankfully little damage. It was a warm yet not overly hot summer in Central Otago, with slightly above average rainfull which allowed ripeness to proceed at a sedate pace creating decent canopy. The condition of the fruit was fantastic, great colours and really elegant tannins.

100% Pinot Noir

MATURATION

Stainless steel tank and barrell fermented
