WINE MAKING NOTES

All winemakers are a bit obsessed with Pinot Noir because it is the most challenging to grow and to make and very unforgiving of mistakes. For Te Whare Ra's style of Pinot Noir they preferred the flavour profiles from the southern side of Marlborough. These soil types have lower fertility and a much higher clay component which gives the wines more depth and structure. 

This release is a blend from two vineyards - their organic and biodynamic Te Whare Ra home block and a small, hillside Omaka Valley block - Rawiri which is owned by the winemakers dear friends. 

All fruit for this wine was hand-picked, hand-sorted destemmed and then berry sorted as well just to make sure. Gently transferred to small one tonne open fermenters, hand plunged up to 4 times daily. Some parcels small % whole bunch. Some inoculated with selected yeasts, and some fermented with native yeast. Cold soak for 7-8 days, 5-6 day ferment, 7-8 days post ferment maceration. Pressed off on taste the filled to oak after 24hrs. In oak for 11 months - all French oak, various different coopers, 30% new, balance in older oak.

TASTING NOTES

This Pinot Noir exhibits gorgeous, fragrant notes of ripe strawberry and omega plum with hints of baking spice, mocha, and some complex savoury undertones. The fleshy, silky tannings combine with vibrant flavours of omega plum and strawberry. The palate has serious weight and flows from fruity purity into more savoury and complex flavours. The wine has great fleshiness and depth and finishes with a lingering persistence of fruit, fine tannin and well integrated oak. Bottled un-fined and with minimal filtration.

2014 was an exceptional vintage in Marlborough, characterised by a textbook summer, and very even ripening and the resultant wines have great concentration and balance. We started picking slightly later than usual and the harvest was very evenly spaced with no wet weather pressure.
