Wairau River Pinot Noir Estate 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

A fruit forward Pinot Noir from a remarkable family owned New Zealand winery known for their small batch production and dedication to quality. Aromas of ripe cherry and spice with note of subtle toasty oak. COLOR Violet AROMA Lifted aromas of ripe cherries and spice. TASTE The palate is soft and generous with delicate primary fruit characters of wild berries shadowed by subtle toasty oak. Fine ripe tannins provide weight and add structure resulting in a long and seamless finish. Length/Type of Aging: 100% French barriques for 9 months
