Pinot Noir Marlborough Mahi

The Mahi Pinot Noir comes from three vineyards. The Twin Valleys Vineyard portion from the cooler Fareham Road area gives palate structure; offering finesse to the back-palate. Fruit from the Byrne Vineyard this year gave some lovely delicacy and more powerful fruit notes. The final portion came from Ward Vineyard, approximately 45 kilometers south of Blenheim, providing great depth to the palate, with rich black fruit characters. In the winery, the grapes were predominantly destemmed before going into small vats for indigenous yeast fermentation. After hand pigeage during fermentation, when finished, the wine was racked to neutral French oak barriques where it aged for 13 months. 13.2% ABV. 1,400 cases produced.

"The 2021 Pinot Noir is a full, richly textured, concentrated wine with a mass of fine tannins that coat the mouth. There's nothing forced here - it feels delicately handled with well-judged oak, allowing the cherry fruit, florality and wild herbs to remain the main event."
