Auntsfield Estate ‘Single Vineyard’ Pinot Noir
These Single Vineyard wines are made from grapes grown exclusively at Auntsfield Estate. Each wine shows the distinctive characteristics of ripeness, texture and minerality – qualities unique to the ancient Greywacke rock and Loess clay soils of the vineyard. Pinot Noir holds a special place in the hearts of all Kiwis, and the ladies and gents at Auntsfield are no exception. They grow the grapes and make this wine with particular care and attention. The resulting wine is distinctive for its lifted aromatics, silky mouthfeel and the powerful expression of pure fruit, ripe tannin and balanced oak.
Rich Black cherry and plum fruit is subtly lifted on the nose by layers of dark red florals and complex savoury aromas of dark chocolate, cigar box and olive tapenade. The palate of this wine shows a rich silky texture, which is full and concentrated. Flavours of ripe berry fruit and dark plum fill the palate. This fruit is supported by powerful yet fine polished tannins giving a plush yet silky texture with seamless length.
