Summerhouse, Pinot Noir, MarlboroughSummerhouse
Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Vineyard and Viticulture:
From vineyards in the renowned Southern Valley sub-region of Marlborough. The hillsides with their ancient, clay laden soils are perfect for crafting exquisite Pinot Noir.
In the winery, a small batch focus allows for careful flavour management and varietal expression. Select yeast strains preserve the expressive flavours from the vines & careful fermentation management resulted in a beautifully balanced wine. The wine was pressed off skin, underwent malolactic fermentation and left to mature in a selection of new & seasoned French Oak barriques for 9 months. The wine was then minimally fines, gently filtered and bottled.
Silky & textural with complex aromas of black cherries & dark berry fruits. Hints of sweet oak impart a savoury aspect coupled with a hint of bramble & spice. Elegant & intriguing , the palate is rich & full with dark berry fruits and gentle acidity framing the ripe, silky, tannins.
