Marlborough, New Zealand
This succulent Pinot Noir has aromas of spice, currant and dark Ghana chocolate. A juicy cherry mouthfeel matches perfectly with the grippy bitterness of the dark cocoa. A long and luxurious feel on the palate will remind you of your favourite cherry jam colliding with that warm dark cup of black tea.
Fruit from the Bendigo region of Central Otago is a joy to work with. Very low rainfall ensures the grapes are always clean and free from blemishes. Although there is the chance of late season frosts, the grapes that survive this period tend to be fully ripe.
