Ataahua 2017 Pinot Noir


Pinot Noir is well suited to the soils and climate of the Waipara Valley, producing exceptional wines of elegance and style. This wine is no exception.  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 spiced cherries with hints of earthy forest floor and mushrooms. Serve with lamb, Coq au vin or duck and roasted mushrooms.

Ataahua 2017 Pinot Noir

Spicy and complex, the beautifully lifted bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, game, mushroom and nutmeg characters, leading to a juicy palate that is elegantly weighted and beautifully rounded. The wine combines sweet berry flavours with savoury nuances, backed by fine-grained tannins, finishing long and smooth.

The wine is delightfully fruited and nicely lifted on the nose showing spiced cherry, thyme, dark
mushroom and olive characters. It is succulent and supple on the plate with lovely fruit weight
and intensity, beautifully supported by fine texture and polished tannins.
