Winemaker: Daniel Le Brun
The Pinot Noir was pressed gently on a long, slow cycle and then fermented with a traditional French Champagne yeast in a stainless steel fermenter. It underwent a natural malolactic fermentation and spent nine months on lees in tank before the tirage, bottling and a further 20 months on lees in bottle Riddling and disgorging were carried out in September 2010 using traditional French methods.
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
