Waihopai Pinot Noir 2018
Pinot Noir – Pinot Noir is incapable of deception. The wine will tell the story of the site. In 2018 the site is alluvial Waihopai gravels and in contrast to clay subsoils, the resulting wine is soft, elegant, floral, and red-fruited. Whole bunch fermentation adds complexity without over-extraction of tannins.
Whole bunch fermentation has reduced extract but has intensified the ethereal aromatics of this most delicate red variety – Pinot Noir.
