2014 Vintage Widow Pinot Noir

2014 Vintage Widow Pinot Noir

from 34.00

Concentrated aromas of red and black fruits overlay a background of dried herbs, spice and cedar. To taste, the flavour profile is a combination of savory and spice notes, rich and ripe flavours, all without losing precise pinot noir detail. Tannins are firm but integrated, leaving a lasting impression of texture, concentration and not least; definitive vineyard and southern Marlborough clay character.

OVERVIEW

This wine is named Vintage Widow in recognition of our families, who are often forgotten at vintage as we strive to make the perfect bottle of Pinot Noir.


HARVEST

2014 promised to be an exceptional year for Marlborough. With warm weather during the day, cool nights and little to no rain through January and February, saw perfect ripening and were tracking for an early start to harvest.

The fruit was sourced from our two clay bound vineyards (Gum Emperor and Somerset blocks) in the southern Waihopai Valley. A mixture of clones 777, 667, 115, 114, UDC5, 10/5, 943 and Able were hand harvested over a 10 day period commencing on the 19th of March.
