2012 Reserve Pinot Noir

Sourced entirely from single cane, single bunch per shoot vines, the fruit for the 2012 Reserve Pinot Noir was hand harvested over 4 days during April. The yeild is kept very low (2t/Ha) to produce a wine with great concentration and the ability to age well.

Tasting Notes

This wine has fragrant notes of blueberry and strawberry, with a hint of violets. The sweet berry fruit, dark cherry and toasted oak flavours combine with rich velvety tannins that expand and linger on the palate, creating an elegant full-bodied wine. Production 100 cases.

What's been said?

A rising star in Nelson, grapes for this stylish pinot were grown on their single vineyard in the Kina Peninsula. The bouquet shows complex aromas of red/black cherry, savoury mushroom, game and subtle spicy oak. It's succulent and silky on the palate with a refreshing mouthfeel and a lengthy crisp finish. The wine shows lovely depth of flavour well supported by the bright acidity. - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2012.
