The grapes from which this wine was made were grown on the vineyard from which the 17 Valley range takes its name. 17 Valley vineyard has a north west aspect and captures one of Marlborough’s warmest air flows. This warmth imparts exceptional fruit sweetness and fine ripe tannins. Grapes are hand picked, cold soaked, fermented using indigenous yeast, gently pressed then aged in French oak barrels. A complex Pinot Noir with ripe red fruit flavours complemented by aromas of spice, dried herb, forest floor and toast. A wine of elegance and concentration.
