100% Pinot Noir
Nelson, New Zealand
10 months in french oak. Hand plunged in open fermenters.
Soft ruby red in colour, with a hint of brown earth around the edges.
A combination of berry fruits and white pepper, with earth, spice, and some truf?e, savoury characters.
A ?ne palate of medium weight, with lovely fruit upfront and savoury ?avours on the mid palate and supple, ?ne tannins on the ?nish. This wine has a classic linear structure, with somewhat restrained fruit and a tannin derived backbone that is subtle yet strong. Open an hour or two prior to drinking and enjoy the discovery, as the Catalina Sounds Pinot Noir evolves in the glass
Lovely with duck con?t.
