When the aromas of chocolate self-saucing pudding and local Marlborough black cherries hit the nose – you’ll be taken back to when your Grandma used to bake the delicious pudding for dessert when you were young. The sweet fruit character of the cherries matches perfectly with the grippy bitterness of the pure cocoa. The palate gives the impression of black Doris plum jam with a toasty oak texture, the drying of the tannins mixes wonderfully with finely balanced spices and fresh acidity you get in a quality homemade jam.
Expect cherries, black doris plums and a maple savoury character on the nose. The ripe and sumptuous concentrated fruit is supported by subtle notes of oak. The wine finishes very smoothly with refined ripe, light tannins providing structure and a smooth silky long flavourful finish. Aged for 12 months in new French Oak.
Food MatchingA great wine with red meats, especially gamey food.
This beautifully fragrant Pinot Noir shows ripe plum, cherry fruit, dried herbs, chocolate and spice characters along with impressive weight. The vibrant fruit flavours are surrounded by a layered tier of tannin, oak and acid delivering a long and luscious finish.
