Limpid garnet color with crimson hues. Lifted cherry and raspberry fruits mesh with wild thyme, gun-smoke, and cinnamon notes. The palate has fine silky tannins that envelop the ripe fruit and provide the texture for a long, complex finish.
Wine Maker Notes
A long time in the shadow of the more full-bodied red wines of the New World, Pinot Noir has become the darling of the red wines imbibed in homes, cafes, and restaurants across the world. New Zealand is blessed with two of the New World's best regions for making fine wine from this most capricious of grape varieties, Martinborough and Central Otago. And at Wild Rock we're privileged to have some of the best vineyards in each region. These are special wines from special places.
