Tasting Notes: This wine celebrates the superb climate of Marlborough and will continue to age and delight for two to three years.
100% Pinot Noir, delicate salmon-pink with a mass of tiny bubbles, the wine offers a seamless balance of subtle cherry and almond hints combined with a fresh acidity. Dry, yet fresh and elegant, this wine leaves a lasting impression of opulence and splendour.
“A pale pink wine with a shy nose of peppery hints. The palate is super-slender, citrusy and comes with absolute freshness and a super-clean, long, dry finish.” - Anne Krebiehl MW, The Buyer 2018
