OTQ PINOT NOIR

Pinot Noir reveals its deeper brooding side.

Violet, poached plum and stewed tamarillo notes overlay darker hints of blackberry and
vanilla compote. The nose is completed by lovely smoky, earthy spice and hints of cocoa
and cinnamon from the French oak barriques. Generous and juicy on the palate, this Pinot Noir has an elegant structure embracing a beautiful balance of berry fruit and savoury flavours. Smoky oak and firm, spicy tannins leading to a long, dry finish.

VINEYARD NOTES

The grapes for this Pinot Noir were grown organically and biodynamically on the Wrekin Vineyard which lies in Marlborough’s Brancott Valley. Positioned on northwestern facing slopes, set in deep clay soils, this charming little vineyard was carefully managed to provide a very low-yielding, highly concentrated crop of a mix of quality Pinot Noir clones: 115, 667, 777, 10/5 and Abel.
