The Te Muna Road Pinot Noir is a single vineyard wine from the old, stony soils of the higher terrace of the Te Muna Road Vineyard. The Pinot grapes are hand harvested and fermented with indigenous yeasts before spending over a year in small French oak barrels. This is a dark, opulent wine with silken texture and layers of aromatics and flavors.
Bright aromas of cherry, raspberry, dried sage and a hint of smoke make for an enticing nose. On the palate the taut, focused fruit tannin sits seamlessly in this medium weight wine with a silky savory finish.
