2011 Maori Point Pinot Noir
This 2011 vintage has wonderful Pinot Noir typicity with the unmistakable flavour of Central Otago Pinot Noir grapes.åÊ The 2011 vintage had a cooler than normal summer so the wine is lighter in colour, soft and smooth with an attractive fruit and floral aroma. On the palate, berry fruits and spices are followed by soft tannins. Unfiltered and unfined to allow full expression of the rich Pinot Noir flavour.
Technical notes:åÊpH 3.6, alcohol 13.8%. Two ferments: a blend of clones with conventional fermentation; and single-clone 10/5 with natural fermentation. Aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 20% new, and bottled without fining or filtration.
