Ataahua 2012 Pinot Noir

Back

Pinot Noir, being one of the most difficult grapes to grow well, has shown on many occasions to be one of the varieties most suited to the soils and climate of the Waipara Valley, producing exceptional wines of elegance and style. This wine is no exception. After a cooler ripening season then the previous year, the fruit was hand harvested in perfect condition the grapes were sorted and destemmed before fermentation, then gently pressed before the resulting wine matured in seasoned French oak barrels. This Pinot Noir has a rich bouquet of ripe berry fruit and cherries with hints of earthy forest floor and mushrooms. The palate is elegantly well balanced with silky tannins and a lingering finish. Serve with slow roasted lamb and seasonal roast vegetables.
