This Pinot Noir comes from a vineyard on the slopes of the Omaka Valley in Marlborough. Owned by Ivan Sutherland of Dog Point. 12 months in older oak. Organic farming.
"This has a beautifully aromatic nose with sweet berry and sour cherry fruit, some floral notes, and a hint of leafy greenness. The palate has lovely focus with more of the sour cherry character, a hint of undergrowth, and a lovely finely spiced structure to the fruit. This is pretty serious: it’s got bags of Marlborough character. I love the sour cherry notes which are just wonderful, and integrate really well with the green herby characters. Lots of personality here.” – Jamie Goode, Wine Anorak.
