Auntsfield Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2018 Southern Valleys Marlborough New Zealand
Press 94 Pts WO "Offering stunning fruit purity with stylish complexity, the wine shows dark plum, violet, subtle spice and almond notes on the nose, leading to a gorgeously concentrated palate that’s silky and flowing. Wonderfully composed and poised for a graceful development"
"This wine was made with a minimalist philosophy, designed to enable the characteristics of the grapes and the vineyard to be revealed. The fruit was hand-harvested, hand-sorted, gently destemmed and gravity-fed to tank. Fermented with a combination of indigenous and cultured yeasts, careful hand plunging was utilised to gently extract flavours and tannins from the skins. Maturation occurred in French oak barriques for approximately 10 months"
