Weather conditions through Pinot Noir flowering were poor, resulting in extremely light crops. We then had very warm and dry weather through January, February and March. As a result, the Pinot Noir wines we made in the 2019 vintage are some of the most intense and concentrated that we’ve ever made. Our 2019 Pinot Noir is a blend sourced from three of our Marlborough vineyards situated in the Southern Valleys sub-region. Diversity of clone allowed us to make a complex and complete wine with vibrant, pure fruit character and depth of flavour. Grapes were cold soaked, fermented in small parcels and aged for nine months in French oak barriques.
