2013 Waipara Hills Waipara Valley Pinot Noir

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

The nose displays spicy, rich cocoa, juicy red berries and earthy aromas. Rich in colour; dense and ripe fruits fill the mouth; alongside earthy savoury flavours from the oak. Firm tannins and fresh acidity give this stunning Pinot Noir good structure and length. This wine is dedicated to Murray Walter, who was involved in planting the first vines at Home Block Vineyard, in recognition of more than 15 years' service 'through every weather change from a freezing cold Southerly to roasting Nor'Wester".
