Waipara Hills Equinox Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2013

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE
Hand picked from The Mound Vineyard in the Waipara Valley. This is a refined Pinot Noir with bright red berry and doris plum aromas which lead to a textured and complex palate of cherries and spice. The epitome of elegance, this wine fills the mouth with ripe fruit tannin and lingers long after the wine is gone.

A cool summer delayed the ripening, which helped to retain the acidity and allowed the aromatics time to fully develop. When the warm, stable weather in autumn finally arrived, it saved the day by allowing the fruit to finish ripening; it was harvested in great condition.

100% Pinot Noir
