Terravin Pinot Noir Marlborough 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine sits deep-ruby in the glass with complexity and silky texture and mouth-feel. This Pinot Noir is indicative of the varietal, but the terroir of New Zealand the expertise of winemaker Mike Eaton have made this wine an award winner.<br/><br/>

Mike and Jo Eaton established TerraVin in the Marlborough region of New Zealand in 1999. The focus is on producing wines that reflect the 30 years Mike has spent in the vineyards locally and his time spent in France. The wines are made from fruit grown on organically managed Estate or leased vineyards, where they retain complete control of all aspects of vineyard management. Varieties: Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay All Pinot Noir is grown on hillside plantings where crops are carefully managed and winemaking is a hands on affair. There are 3 tiers of wines in the Terravin range. Estate- a more fruit focused range tha accentuates the natural fruit that marlborough is famous for. Hillside Reserve - A selection of barrels that are blended from the best aspects of the hillside blocks of bth Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Single Vineyard - Selected from the finest Pinot Noir sites and the finest barrels that typify that particular vineyard. A true expression of place - terroir. Te Ahu - 100% Sauvignon Blanc that is sourced from old, low yielding vines. Wild fermented in french puncheons for up to 11 months before blending and bottling. A unique expression of Sauvignon Blanc. "J" - miniscule quantities (400 bottles) of this merlot dominant bordeaux blend are made by Mike each year in honour of his wife Jo.   Read less

well textured and nicley balance wine. Velvet fruit that is fresh and vibrant with enough complexity to be engaging. It has a savoury rich back ground and a long finish.

The excellent 2005 Pinot Noir is more enticing with its gorgeous brambly nose and fruit driven palate with very ripe tannins and a mellow refined toasty finish. Good length and harmony.

It has a complex brambly nose with a subtle hint of sloes which is followed by a medium-bodied palate with silky tannins and a sensuous red-berried finish. Very pure and natural this excellent Pinot should drink well over 8-10 years
