Terravin Pinot Noir Omaka Valley Hillside Selection 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Mouth filling with concentrated ripe tropical fruit flavours. A tight structured acidity showing its youth with a lovely minerality than runs full length of the palate. Very youthful but will age well

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

It is indeed 50/50 Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc and at 5 years old now it is just starting to unfold. Very tight still and showing citrus and wild honey characters that are overlaid with complexity showing now from the wild ferment and barrel aging. It still is very youthful and needs time yet. It defininitely benefits from a larger glass and more air at room temperature.

very good wine. a very different style to the usual Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc. Winemaking notes say it is 50% Sauvignon Blanc and 50% Semillon.
