2013 Somerset Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

2013 Somerset Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

from 48.00

The fruit from our clay bound Somerset vineyard consistently produces a Pinot Noir that is a true expression of the vineyard and terroir. Intense red fruits, perfumed violet and delicate rose petal with an underlying wild thyme aromatic create a nose that is pure and classic.

The Pinot Noir grapes were hand harvested from our Somerset vineyard, on the Waihopai Valley Road, Marlborough. The soil is 1 m of stony loam over a heavy Waihopai clay/gravel pan. The vineyard was not irrigated over the growing season.
