VINIFICATION: Premium Pinot Noir grapes were hand harvested at optimal ripeness. A selection was whole bunch pressed and underwent wild fermentation to add complexity. Blended from 12 of the best barrels, this Pinot Noir was identified as a standout in the vintage and selected by our team as worthy of carrying a Select Parcel label.
The Limestone Terrace Vineyard, in the Awatere Valley sub-region of Marlborough, is spectacular and rugged. Using only the best parcels from this sub-region the Limestone Terrace Pinot Noir is a fine example of this wonderful variety. Limited by nature, elegant and pure.
