The fruit is taken from three different sub regions allows us to find the best attributes of each area. This wines final composition included parcels of fruit from the Gibbston Valley and Alexandra. Alexandra is famous for its intense summer heat while Gibbston Valley is the coldest of the grape growing regions in Central Otago. This cooler influence leads to wines with brighter red fruits and more acidity. This acidity forms the bases for the mouth watering freshness and minerality in this Pinot Noir. The Alexandra heat adds balance to these cooler elements and ensures the bright fruits do not descend into greenness and under ripe characters.

"Immensely complex and inviting, the wine shows dark berry, smoked game, almond and fragrant spice aromas with a gorgeous floral overtone. It's concentrated and refined on the palate, delivering excellent fruit purity combined with seductive savoury nuances, brilliantly framed by fine grainy tannins. At its best: 2022 to 2032
