Spy Valley Pinot Noir 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Pinot Noir is hand-harvested from vines in our Marlborough vineyard, gently separated from the stems and fermented in small, traditional open-top vats. These vats are hand-plunged to extract colour and tannin, and after pressing the wine is aged in French oak barrels. Fruit-driven in style with soft tannins and spicy oak. Colour Garnet. Bouquet: Red fruits, plum and sweet cherry are underpinned with fragrant notes of spice and dried sage. Palate: Fruit forward with a long supple structure, licorice and cocoa notes are typical of our vineyard site.

Naturally fermented and then aged in oak barrel for 8 months, the 2010 Spy Valley Pinot Noir reveals a ruby-purple color and aromas of warm strawberries, macerated cranberries and red cherries with a hint of forest floor. Medium bodied with mouth-filling red berry flavors, it is well supported by finely grained tannins and refreshing acidity, finishing long and a little spicy. Drink it now through 2015+.

Digs deep into the spice box, with nutmeg, clove and allspice flavors that perfectly frame the ripe, supple wild black cherry and raspberry notes. Comes together on a supple frame, with plenty of staying power on the finish. Drink now through 2015.

Bright medium red. Cherry and dried herbs on the high-pitched nose. On the lean side, but fresh and intense, with red berry and spice flavors complicated by a hint of licorice. Just a slight greenness running through the wine. Finishes firm.
