Why do we love this wine?
A settlement can either be a place to call home or an agreement on terms. We’d be pretty agreeable here if we were able to call the Omaka Valley in Marlborough our home. That’s the source for the grapes for this pinot. The steep north-facing slope of the organic vineyard soaks in the sun, allowing for nice ripening and concentration of flavours. At harvest, the fruit is hand-picked with 30% whole bunches going into the wild ferment. 18 months of 35% French oak follows that, making for a grippy and textural wine that is also unfined before bottling. There’s power and spice on the nose here, bright red fruit on the palate and persistent tannins throughout which show a propensity for successful ageing of the wine.
Tell me what you really think.
