2018 The Doctors' Pinot Noir
Our Pinot Noir is produced from our North and Middle Wairau Valley vineyards, planted over 20 years ago - very special sites composed of alluvial river terrace soils, crushed stones and clay. Simply put, we’ve perfected a delicious full flavoured wine by slowing the grape plant’s ability to make sugar but not its ability to make flavour. And it’s all done in the vineyard. No chemistry tricks or genetic engineering wizardry here. Just sustainably grown, naturally produced lower alcohol wine.
Bright, red summer fruits with lifted floral notes, followed through by a rich palate with dark cherry, raisins and a nutty, savoury undertone.
