A tame wolf in Burgundian cloak. From the clay soils of the Southern Valleys, this is Marlborough Pinot Noir at its best – vibrant, complex and serious. Underneath the varietal Pinot charm, lies a brooding side wine with a dark, seductive richness. Fragrance, fruit sweetness and purity with firm acidity, silky tannins and a salty, savoury finish - the perfect balance of dark and red fruits. Think dark cherries and red plums with a whiff of vanilla and cinnamon. From a single vineyard site, every now and then the stars align, and the combined attributes of terroir create a perfectly balanced Pinot Noir with all the sophistication and complexity that make it the most talked about grape variety.
