Very classy premium Marlborough Pinot Noir from three time New Zealand Winemaker of the Year - Nikolai St George and his Giesen winemaking team. With fruit sourced from the Southern Valleys, this is a refined and feminine style with a restrained oak regime that allows the beautifully pure fruit characters to shine. All class.
Dark cherry and blackberry aromas pair elegantly with delicate floral aromas, and are backed up by spicy complexity of clove and cinnamon. A rich palate, with ample fine, chalky tannin adding structure and length to this wine. Balanced acidity lends energy and elegance.
The fruit for this vintage was hand-selected from throughout the Southern Valleys, a region renowned for growing Pinot Noir with great colour, excellent texture and ripeness.
