Georges Michel is situated in the 'Golden Mile' which denotes the central route of the Rapaura area, renowned for the production of the best flavored fruit of the Marlborough wine region.
The vineyards, totaling 35 hectares, are 100% winery-owned and currently produce 250 tonnes of fruit annually. They are situated in two blocks, both on the Golden Mile, in the prime Marlborough Terrior and are managed under the watchful eye of our viticulture consultant Daniel Le Brun. Since their very first release, Georges Michel's wines have been awarded numerous national and international Awards including Top Gold Awards in the USA, Asia, Europe and Australia.
This wine is 100% Pinot Noir and the grapes were harvested as whole clusters. It was fermented with a selected burgundy yeast in open fermenters for over a week before being pressed off. It then underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine was then racked into two-year-old French oak barriques and matured for a further 8 months.
Tasting Note: "Spicy nose with cardamom, cinnamon and sour red fruits continuing from the nose to palate, very well balanced acidity to intensity. Neat tannins."
