"This is the smell of Nelson, a line of aromatic, which is what I call 'Purple'. You smell purple in the wine. It's juicy, delicious and uncomplicated. This is a fresh Pinot Noir, interesting to the point of being fun." - Cameron Douglas (MS)

Winemaker's Notes

This wine is from grapes grown on our sustainably certified vineyard in Ranzau Road, Hope. The vines were carefully shoot thinned and leaf plucked to give the berries optimum exposure to the sun. Slow to ripen bunches were removed by hand thus ensuring the grapes were perfectly ripe at the time of picking. In the winery the grapes were carefully taken off their stems and left cold to soak for a period before fermentation. A warm ferment on the skins with careful cap plunging by hand enabled us to extract optimum varietal colour and flavour. The wine was then aged in french oak barriques for eleven months prior to bottling. This allowed the tannins and oak to integrate fully with the ripe fruit flavours, creating this elegant and vibrant Pinot Noir.
