Rapaura Springs Marlborough Pinot Noir

2015

In a Nutshell

Ripe, yet elegant Marlborough Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

Lovely ripe berry and dark cherry fruit notes combined with attractive smoky and spicy elements. Fleshy berry fruits and spicy oak nuances are to the fore on the full, rich palate. Elegant silky tannins balance the generous fruit flavours and meld seamlessly together to a lingering, elegant finish.

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.
