Pinot Noir is a red grape which has found in New Zealand a home away from home. Intense, elegant and fruit-driven in style, Pinot Noir is an extremely food friendly wine which may exhibit an array of vibrant flavors including red fruit, plum, cherry, currant, often with notes of clove and spice.
The Private Bin Pinot Noir is a blend from specially chosen vineyards in the Awatere and Wairau Valleys. The varying soil types, meso-climates offer different tannin structures, flavors and aromas to the wine.
A fruit-driven style of Pinot Noir with a lively personality, this wine expresses an abundance of red cherries on the nose, along with baking spices such as clove and cinnamon. On the palate, fruit flavors of cranberries and fresh raspberries are intermingled with freshly roasted coffee beans and soft cocoa like-tannins.
Pinot Noir is incredibly versatile and will go well with roast chicken, duck confit, smoked salmon or simply with mature cheddar cheese.
