2004 was an outstanding growing season for us in Marlborough. Our Pinot Noir grapes were hand harvested in excellent condition in March. Three separate pickings took place for clones 5 and 115, 667 and 777 and clone 10/5.

Each batch of grapes was processed separately and the pressed juice cold soaked in open topped fermenters for several days for maximum colour extraction. The juice was then placed into new (50%) and seasoned French Oak and lees aged for 12 months.

Prior to bottling, Kent and I selected what we felt were some of our most outstanding barrels to make a limited release of this Pinot Noir which is a beautiful expression of our unique terroir. A complex, sensual and masculine style Pinot Noir, it is dark garnet in colour with penetrating notes of dried rose petals in cedar, spicy black cherry, mushrooms and undertones of earthy, damp forest floor. It has supple and silky tannins which create an elegant finish. We expect this wine to age well for at least 5 years.
