Liquorice and spice notes weave under blackcurrant and cherry aromes
Careful handling and small-batch fermentation has created layers of succulent flavours including black plum, blackcurrant, liquorice and spice. These are complemented by the blueberry and boysenberry characters that are typical of Pinot Noir fruit from this special site. The palate is rich with a silky texture and excellent weight.
The small Blind River vineyard is in Marlborough's Awatere Valley in the north-east of New Zealand's South Island. It occupies a sheltered spot at the foot of gentle, rolling hills overlooking the picturesque valley floor. Mount Tapuaenuku lies to the west and the Pacific Ocean to the east. Planted with Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir, the soils are deep, stony clay with seams of free-draining, clay-mixed gravels on river terraces. The vineyard is split into blocks with each treated separately and the corresponding wines are fermented and individually handmade ready for blending to achieve the ultimate in style and quality.
