2017 Pinot Noir Release

1 May 2019

The 2017 vintage has shone throughout Central Otago as being a spectacular vintage. The cool nights and warms days make for vibrant energetic wines, with high fruit concentration.

Today we are releasing our 2017 Pinot Noir blends - the River Run, Finla Mor and our signature Pinot Noir the Mata-Au.

River Run Pinot Noir 2017
Opens with an enticing bouquet of floral herbs, red fruits, earth and spicy notes. The fresh red fruits are countered beautifully with lingering juicy acidity and fine chalky tannins. The palate shows good texture and suppleness; flowing to a calm and assured finish.

Finla Mor Pinot Noir 2017
The bouquet of red and black cherries, dark spices and savoury elements is rich and complex. There is a pleasant fullness and ripeness to the cherry dominated fruits on the palate, along with a beautifully balanced long elegant finish.

Mata- Au Pinot Noir 2017
Displaying an enticing perfume of red berry and cherry fruits alongside herbal notes of lavender and black tea, the aromas are pushed to a heady crescendo by the flinty like mineral tones that lurk in the background.The palate is seductively silky and offers a wonderfully expansive and lucid purity. The freshness of the red berry and herb cocktail gives poise to the mineral and persistent finish.
