Giesen Clayvin Pinot Noir 2018
- Textured, savoury
The Clayvin vineyard is considered one of Marlborough’s most decorated pinot sites. A high-density plantings, from over 30 years ago - now certified organic. Everything here is done with meticulous care, attention and love. From hand picking to basket pressing, to a long ageing of the highest quality French oak for ageing. Once this pinot is ready to set sail, one can be assured of a confident intensity, an elegant restraint and ever present structure. The fruit is classic NZ pinot; primarily strawberry and cherry with an underlying earthiness attributed to the clay soils of the vineyard. An insanely beautiful pinot with incredibly silken texture and length, that has a very long life ahead of it. A pinot given the ‘Rolls Royce’ treatment from vineyard to winery.
