The terroir of Marlborough, South Island show on Greywacke Pinot Noir. Sandstone soils, fresh herb, bright plum and cherry flavours and a touch of spice on the palate makes this vintage. Floral and fresh. Enjoy now and for next couple years. Easy and approachable on its own.

Pinot Noir food pairings: baked mushrooms stuffed with cream cheese crab and green onion, mushroom and onion risotto, cheese and potatoes rissole.
