About

te Pā Pinot Noir

The grapes for this wine were handharvested from the Omaka North vineyard and fermented in batches in 4T open top fermenters. Each batch had about 10-30% whole bunch, with the remainder being gently destemmed whole berries. The wine was left on skins for a further 7-15 days post-fermentation to build structure and harmonise the tannins. The wine was matured in French oak barrels for 10 months – 25% of which were new.

Taste
An intensely perfumed nose with high notes of red fruits and florals overlying more brooding characters of dark cherries, spice and cedar. The palate displays plums and berry fruits alongside anise and cinnamon spice. The fruit is encased in supple tannins, and supported by bright acidity to give a long lingering spicy finish to the wine.
