A NOTE FROM OUR WINEMAKERS
This wine has the fine aromatics and full-flavoured cherry fruit one expects of Central Otago Pinot Noir wines with the delicate floral lift that is the hallmark of Wanaka.

THE FINER DETAILS
This is an exceptional wine from a great vintage. It has the classic varietal notes of sour cherries and raspberries backed by earthy and savoury complexity.Download Tasting Notes
Vintage 2013 was a good one in Wanaka – there was good rain, the vines were healthy, disease pressure was very low and there was excellent colour and flavour development in fruit.
Each clone was fermented separately and hand plunged in small open fermenters. The wine was aged for 12 months in a mix of old and new French oak.
