Single vineyard pinot noir from one of Marlborough’s first vineyards, going back almost 150 years. The region is best known for its sauvignon blanc, but ask any winemaker there what gets their heart racing and they’ll tell you it’s pinot noir. This one has an intensely layered nose of black cherry, plum, dark chocolate and cedar, which is backed up on the palate with more cherry and plum, fine tannins and graphitey minerality all wrapped up in a silky package. An amazingly complex wine that’ll make you wonder why pinot noir isn’t the most famous grape from Marlborough.
