Matahiwi Estate Holly South Series Pinot Noir 2020
- Medium bodied
Every year we have to wait for this wine. Unfortunately, it sells out too quickly! So we know it’s been a while since the Fo’ have had our mittens on Matahiwi’s more premium ‘Holly’ range. Thankfully, it’s back - let’s breathe a sigh of relief, we have been craving pinot pleasure. Blood plum and juicy cherry notes flood the senses here. A delicate, cedary oak overlays aromas of soft spices and purple flowers, with a mouthful of sophistication, and bright acidity. There is such great length and and amazing cellaring potential. With ten months in French oak (35% of which is new), a combination of specifically selected pinot noir clones and a vintage providing ideal fruit ripeness, we’re sure you’ll appreciate the complete package that is the ‘Holly’.
Full price $60.00 from the producer.

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.
