Vinted as a side project by well known Marlborough based winemaker Tim Adams, this Pinot Noir comes from a single vineyard in the Upper Moutere region of Nelson. Flavours of succulent dark berries with touches of savoury spice. Previous vintage was awarded 5 stars and we expect this new release to follow. This is quality wine with significant cellar potential. Expect to be impressed.
The winery writes "Made with minimal inputs and handling. Handpicked fruit was left to soak until the wild ferment kicked off, 30% whole bunches added fragrance and structure. Bramble, licorice and spices all dance on the nose. Dense and weighty this follows through to the palate where the tannin from whole bunches and oak provide a frame for the dark fruits, spice and earthy notes. Long and full it will continue to reward for years to come."
Cameron Douglas writes "Nice bouquet, attractive and quite alluring with baking spices, red berry fruits and old rose aromas. Clove then vanilla, toasty wood layer, fresh and dried cherry, dried strawberry and plum. Dry with a firm youthful palate of textures - fine tannins, chalky, some drier red berry fruit flavours, floral and organic wild berry fruits, slightly elevated alcohol (easily tamed with food), fairly lengthy finish, well made. Overall this is a very nice wine with a particular personality and pinosity. Drink now and through 2022."
