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 wonderful expansive and lucid purity. The freshness of the red berry and herb cocktail gives poise to the mineral and persistent finish.
Our Mata-Au vineyards are located in the Lowburn and Parkburn areas of the Cromwell basin. The vineyards are planted on the terraces and alluvial schist based soils formed by the Mata-Au (Clutha) River (pronounced – martar-o). The unique combination of site, soil and mild continental climate produces perfumed wines with elegant texture, structure and mineral length. It is made from the best blocks in our best vineyards in the Lowburn/Parkburn sub-region. Mata-Au showcases the succulent red fruits and silky tannins that are the hallmarks of this sub-region, delivered in our elegant, textural and length driven style.
