An organic vineyard at one of Marlborough best sites, with the grapes hand-picked, produced and bottled on our estate! Our hand-picked grapes arrive a few minutes later in the cool on-site winery, still fresh with no need for sulphur. The grapes are gently processed in an old bag press and finished in stainless-steel tanks used as fermenters and for blending. Temperature controlled ageing in the finest French oak barrels Bottling, labelling and packaging is all done at the winery to ensure the quality is never compromised.
Hans Herzog Pinot Noir 2016
Aromas of Mediterranean herb garden and ripe berry bushes. With hints of dark chocolate and spicy cloves, this is the perfect blend of sweet and savoury; held together with elegant tannins and fine acidity. Will age beautifully over the next 10 years and beyond. Food pairing: pork, lamb and pasta dishes.
The grapes were given four days to cold soak before a natural wild yeast initiation of the ferment. The wine spent 24 days on the skins before being pressed and transferred into 20% new French Allier barriques for malolactic fermentation and further ageing for 20 months. Unfined and unfiltered to retain the great flavours. Natural sediments may show
