Pinot Noir was left on the vines well after harvest to gain ripeness and some botrytis to produce this fascinating wine. A short period of skin contact has resulted in the tawny rose colour and provides a subtle back bone of tannin. Aromas of grapefruit marmalade with caramelised fruit lead into a rich honeyed palate with red currant and intriguing flavours of a Tokay or Madeira wine. Richly fruited but with crisp acidity this wine is well suited to drinking with blue cheese or a spiced fruit cake.
100% grown from our Te Muna Road site in what can be considered a remarkable year for the variety.
A very sweet style (186g/l sugar) has been created from individual bunch selected grapes. They were carefully skin contacted for 24 hours then gently pressed to yield the precious high sugar must. Using the German classification this wine would be Beerenauslese quality.
An ideal match with fruit based desserts, soft cheeses or enjoy as an aperitif for something to liven up your taste buds.
It is a true reflection of Martinborough’s distinctive terroir. Cellar for up to five years successfully.
