TerraVin Pinot Noir 2012, Marlborough, New Zealand (750ml)
This product is currently sold out.
The current vintage for the TerraVin Pinot Noir is 2012. This vintage had restricted flowering and fruit set due to a cool spring and the coldest summer for many years resulting in very low yields. Fortunately from late March we enjoyed a classic Marlborough ‘Indian Summer’ which allowed the smaller berries and low bunch numbers to ripen evenly. This resulted in excellent concentration of flavour and balance; the only downside was the lower volume.

Pale ruby with a hint of purple, the 2012 Pinot Noir opens with notes of tar, Ceylon tea and rose hips accenting a core of cranberries, red cherries and game. Medium-bodied and delicately fruited in the mouth, it has a quiet intensity and plenty of layers with silky tannins and a long, lively finish.
