Marlborough rouge

Petit Clos Pinot Noir

The nose reveals aromas of red berries, mainly dominated by cherry and plum notes. There is a juicy red berries mouthfeel on the palate supported by very fine and supple tannins while retaining freshness all the way to the long finish.

Stuffed pork fillet with tapenade or perfect with barbecue meats.

This wine was fermented in stainless steel open tops and then aged in large (7,500 l) French oak vats for 11 months. Ageing in large oak vats, instead of smaller barrels, gives the wine great balance with subtle oak which enriches structure while retaining aromatic intensity.

This fruit driven Pinot has supple tannins and a juicy yet savoury profile from our younger vines.

Winegrowing & Terroir

In the French tradition, our entire vineyard is high density planted – this forces the vines to compete with one another, resulting in highly concentrated grapes. The younger Pinot vines on our estate are situated on 3 different soil types. All our Pinot Noir is hand-picked in the cool, early mornings to retain fruit integrity.
