The Max Pinot Noir
Limited production of just 300, hand-numbered bottles
This first ever release of The Max is a special collaboration between us and renown New Zealand artist, Max Gimblett. Just two wines, a Chardonnay and a Pinot Noir, they are a combination of provenance, tradition and innovation with Max’s extraordinary artwork as the label. His strikingly bold, powerful brushwork, balance, depth and choice of colours hinting at the power and complexities of both the art and the wine.
The Pinot Noir is a combination of grapes from the company’s Waihopai Valley vineyard and the Barnsley Block, also in the Waihopai Valley. These vineyards are both 20 years old. It was small batch fermented, then pressed to barrel. Clones are 5, 667 and 115 and oak was medium toast, Damy.
The Max is the culmination of more than 30 years of knowledge and experience embracing the art, nature and science of winemaking.
