Matahiwi Estate Holly Pinot Noir 2019
- Textured, savoury
Yes folks, you’ve asked for more and we’ve delivered because when a pinot noir of this quality comes along at this price, why wait? Matahiwi’s ‘Holly’ range continues to grow in popularity throughout the nation, and for good reason. With a swath of rich, dark forest fruits and an aromatic lift of soft cooking spices, this is a supercharged pinot for those of you after a richer, more robust style. Ready to knock back in its youth thanks to a generous fruit profile, the wine has had a major whack of French oak prior to bottling, a good 10 months and 35% new. Couple that with a core of balanced, driving acidity and you can feel very confident to lay this down for a good 5-7 years and let those ever intriguing secondary and tertiary characteristics shine through.

Matahiwi Estate is another New Zealand wine success story. For such a small country, Kiwi's do an exceptional job on the world stage. Alastair Scott is a passionate wine man (aren't we all?), born and bred in the beautiful Wairarapa Valley on the north island. He dreamt of making world class wines. Back in the day (some 100 years pre-Alastair), an Italian wine scientist identified the Wairarapa Valley as ideal for growing grapes. Fast forward to today and Matahiwi Estate does the region proud with their stable of award-winning wines, while nurturing the land with sustainable practices. So Alastair’s dream came true, and he now spends his time spreading the very good word of Matahiwi wines around the world.
Maori for 'glistening waters', Wairarapa is a small region around Wellington, at the very bottom of New Zealand's north island. It includes the subregions of Martinborough, Gladstone and Masterton. If the names Dry River, Martinborough Vineyards and Ata Rangi ring a bell, you probably need no further introduction. If they don't, it's time you were introduced to a diverse range of landscapes that produce a similarly varied range of scrumptious wines that Kiwis are rightly proud of.
