Rapaura Springs Marlborough Pinot Noir

2013

In a Nutshell

Ripe, yet elegant Marlborough Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

Succulent dark cherry and raspberry fruit aromas combine with a hint of underlying spicy oak on the nose. The palate consists of finely balanced ripe tannins, oak and sweet berry fruits. Excellent structure, the wine finishes smooth and elegant.

Production Notes

At the winery, a period of cold soaking extracted the fruit flavours and was followed by natural fermentation using wild yeast to build complexity. Tannin management was achieved by gentle plunging of the cap. The wine was pressed promptly after the end of fermentation, then matured in new and seasoned French oak barriques for nine months.
