Sliding Hill Pinot Noir 2019
- Textured, savoury
With its hillside location, Pinot Noir at Siding Hill enjoys a sunny aspect, good drainage and all the best bits that New Zealand’s Marlborough region has to offer - cool nights and warm days - perfect for acid retention. Along with that freshness is a palate of vibrant dark cherry and plum with plenty of depth. It’s fleshy and floral with a nice touch of brambly undergrowth. Add French oak to the mix and you’ve got a complete package. Lovely.
“Sweetly perfumed and immediately appealing, the wine shows Black Doris plum, raspberry, violet, olive and toasted nut characters on the nose. The palate offers terrific fruit purity and intensity, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and fine-grained tannins. At its best: now to 2024. May 2020.”
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.

Marlborough is the famous region that has rocketed NZ into the world wine scene. For good or for bad, the wine that hails from here is distinctive, exploding with aromatics and quality and balance are only improving. Located at the top of the South Island, there is no doubt that Marlborough is the epicentre of the New Zealand wine industry - a region synonymous with some of the world's best Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The distinctive conditions of Marlborough - warm, sunny days and cold nights allow winemakers to unleash the unique expressions of grape, not seen anywhere else in the world.
