Winemaker Notes
Our 2018 Pinot Noir is based on a single block of fruit at Maraekakaho, inland from Hastings in Hawkes Bay. This is an elevated terrace overlooking the beautiful Ngaruroro River. Altitude is very important for Pinot Noir in Hawkes Bay – the plains are simply too hot for this fragile variety. The Maraekakaho Vineyard is 100m above sea level and this gives us the warm days, but cool nights that Pinot craves. The fruit was harvested in the evening and trucked to Auckland for vinification. Our style is very hands off– our inputs are minimal and we intervene only when required.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Youthful and bright at bottling with a ruby red rim and a deep core. Bouquet: Our 2018 Hawkes Bay Pinot Noir shows wonderful typicity. It has aromas of red and black fruits. Palate: Typically round and supple, with just enough tannin to give overall structure. There is masses of sweet fruit on the finish.
Cellaring
This wine has such vibrant fruit that it is immediately approachable. Two years cellaring will reveal a wine of much greater complexity and intrigue. This wine may well produce a sediment with extended cellaring.
Food Matching
Superb with lamb rack.
