The 2019 Sugar Loaf Pinot Noir is sourced entirely from our hillside
vineyard on Marlborough's Southern Valleys, it has lifted aromas of
red plum, cocoa & liquorice. The palate is elegant and lingering with
summer berries, ripe plum, savoury black pepper and notes of toasty
oak with delicate supple tannins.

WINEMAKERS COMMENT:
The grapes were all hand harvested then 85% destemmed (15% left as
whole bunch) before being cold soaked for 7 days to ensure maximum
flavour and colour extraction. Fermentation was in small open top
vessels, hand plunged three times a day. Post ferment maceration was
for 7 days and free run wine was then transferred to French barrels
(25% new) for ageing before a 100% malolactic fermentation in the
Spring.
