The wines of the Wither Hills Single Vineyards – Rarangi, Benmorven and Taylor River – test the senses and demonstrate the superb synergy between region, vineyard site, variety and the winemaker. These vineyards define our unique sense of place within Marlborough.

WINEMAKERS NOTES

Marlborough was sun drenched throughout late spring and summer as the 2014 growing season saw daily temperatures consistently above long term averages, resulting in one of the warmest summers in the last decade. Flowering and fruit set progressed without concern and we knew we were set up for a great harvest. With the warm weather continuing, ripening progressed quickly and harvest commenced earlier than in previous years. Pinot Noir was a standout this year. The berries were in immaculate condition with a gorgeous depth of flavour in the fruit.

Lying alongside the Taylor River shingle fan and leading south into the Wither Hills, lies the ‘Taylor River’ Vineyard. The mixed soils of loam, silt, clays and some river gravels of this site along with the moderating easterly allows the Pommard & Dijon clones to express the bold and structured side of Pinot Noir.

TASTING NOTES

Dark red/crimson in colour with a richness that instantly reveals complexity and depth as the wine hits the glass. The aromatics are typical of our Taylor River vineyard - bold and generous with layers of wild dark berry fruits, subtle white pepper and dried herbal spice interlaced with harmonious French oak nuance. The palate displays Taylor River’s hallmark rich layered structure with dark brambly wild berry fruits, spice and firm tannin profile. A wine that is complex and thought provoking, this wine looks great now or will cellar beautifully and expose its true self.
