Our 2016 Pinot Noir is produced from carefully nurtured vines at our Chaytors Road and Waihopai vineyards where the combination of clones, climate and soils produce something special. Small batch fermentation, hand-plunging and aging in French oak has helped to produce an expressive wine with intense berry fruit, lovely texture, great concentration and gentle tannins.

Enjoy in moderation with lighter red meats, hot ham or if you like red wine with fish, try it with salmon or a yellow fin tuna steak.
