Wither Hills Pinot Noir Wairau Valley 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Our philosophy is to produce a distinctive Marlborough Pinot Noir and the 2006 is no exception. A wonderful core of ripe dark smokey plum, and dense rich brambly forest fruits command the aromatics, the tannins are silky, and acid balance sublime, adding structure and weight to the leather spice, cocoa notes. A hallmark of Wither Hills Pinot Noir is the purity of fruit, youthful bright elegant flavours and subtle power. This is a classic!
