K&L Notes

A fantastic little value in Pinot Noir. Bright, highly perfumed, pure red fruits, subtle baking spices, silky texture and vibrant acidity. Great little everyday wine for lovers of more elegant, food friendly tipples. Think of this as a good Bourgogne Rouge substitute at an uncommonly low price point - what a steal! (Ryan Woodhouse, K&L NZ wine buyer) Winemaker's notes: "The fruit for this wine was sourced from a low cropping vineyard on Canterbury's Banks Peninsula and the Cabal Vineyard in the neighboring Waipara Valley. Soils are volcanic in the former and Glasnevin alluvial gravels in the latter. At the winery the fruit was immediately de-stemmed. The wine was naturally fermented by wild yeast in small, open-top fermenters. After fermentation the wine is macerated on skins until we thought the balance between tannin and flavours was perfect. After pressing, the wine was transferred into a mix of seasoned and 3 year old French oak barrels where it matured on fermentation lees for 10 months. The wine underwent natural spontaneous malo-lactic fermentation the following spring before being racked into tank for blending and equalizing before being bottled unfined and unfiltered."
