| Bright red cherry colour. The nose is very pretty and attractive showing evolution, with some nice fruit and spice notes. It is dry, medium bodied and savoury with soft and gentle texture and tannins. A very good food wine!
More on vineyard and winemaking: TerraVin draws fruit from three densely planted sites stretching across the revered Southern Valleys of Marlborough. These hillside vineyards are afforded their true expression through low yields (2200-5000 plants/ha), gentle handling, and winemaker Gordon Ritchie’s intuitive approach.
It is these complex layers from these vineyards and the cooler evening temperatures that give optimal growing conditions for a more complex and intense Pinot Noir with purity, freshness and balance. Fruit harvested into 10kg bins and was gently de-stemmed and fermented with indigenous yeasts before being aged in French oak for 11 months, wines were then bottled unfined and unfiltered.
