Martinborough Vineyard Pinot 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

A very warm summer (think Melbourne bush fires) – has produced a rich supple Pinot Noir full of red and dark fruits with hedonistic savoury and spice characters. Hand-picked from our oldest blocks of Pinot on the Martinborough Terrace the age of these vines is now beginning to show a real sense of place or ‘terroir’. This is most evident on the palate where the older vines produce a wine showing greater complexity and depth that will see this wine age gracefully for at least ten years. As we enter our 30 years of growing great Pinot this is something we are getting very excited about.
