Gourmet Traveller WINE 2022 New Zealand winemaker of the year!
Black Estate and farmed organically (certified) and currently converting to Biodynamics. The fruit is hand-picked and fermented using vineyard derived yeast, specific to each site and season. Once fermentation is complete, the wines settle naturally in seasoned or neutral oak, tank or clay amphora. No other fining or filtration processes are used and no additions are made except minimal sulphur prior to bottling.
Deep ruby hue. Smells like dark plum, violets, black olive, woody herbs, cinnamon, and earth. The palate is dense, typical of Pinot Noirs from the Home vineyard clays, with emerging silky fruit flavours and a persistent mineral finish.
Unfiltered wine with small amounts of sediment. Decanting will allow maximum expression of aroma and purity of fruit. Made from certified organic grapes.
