River Run Pinot Noir 2015
River Run is our Central Otago regional Pinot Noir made from grapes grown in our vineyards in different sub-regions of Central Otago. The deep alpine valleys and waterways of Central Otago have craved the land available for grape growing into quite distinct sub-regions. Each pocket of land has its own unique climate and soil mix producing quite different styles of Pinot Noir. River Run captures the character of each of the sub-regions where are vineyards are planted. Lowburn gives us bright, fresh sweet fruit, Gibbston savory and herbal tones, and Parkburn brings good texture and mineral length.
Bursting with cherry and wild berry fruit, the bouquet also gives up elements of spice and dried herbs. On the palate the wine is a seamless package of elegant cherry fruit and beautifully presented tannins and acid on the long and detailed finish - thoroughly smashable.
