***Vavasour Pinot Noir, Awatere Valley: The Pinot Noir grapes come from 'The Favourite Block' so named to reflect the warmer microclimate of the site. To extract optimum colour, flavour and tannin, traditional Burgundian hand-plunging techniques are employed during fermentation. Maturation for 11 months in French oak barriques (35% new) provides additional aromatics, flavours and structure to the wine. A luscious and aromatic wine, which features black cherry, plum and anise spice, the finish is elegant, long and velvety.
***Waipara Hills Pinot Noir, Central Otago: The Central Otago region, secluded in the middle of the southern end of the South Island, has become world famous for its Pinot Noir wines. Nearly all the fruit comes from the Golden Terraces Vineyard with 3% from the Woolshed Vineyard, harvested over a ten-day period. Gently de-stemmed, the grapes are cold soaked followed by a short ferment and pressing, the wine is matured in a mixture of tank and barrel for about nine months. Bramble fruit, cherry, spice and a hint of smoke on the nose, black cherry and plum on the palate supported by oak spice, soft tannins and a bright, refreshing finish.
***Vidal Reserve Pinot Noir, Marlborough: A blend of Pinot Noir from the Wairau and Awatere valleys of the Marlborough region. The unique meso-climates in these valleys produces fruit of the highest quality. Ferments were hand plunged, for gentle extraction of flavour compounds and some batches were hot fermented to contribute density, structure and savoury complexity top the final wine aged in French oak over winter. A luscious and aromatic wine.
