What the Critics say
Una Volta means One Off, which is self-explanatory. From a vineyard in Queensberry halfway between Wanaka and Cromwell. Creamy-textured pinot noir with ripe plum, dark berry, liquorice, anise and spicy flavours. A classic 'iron fist in a velvet glove' with seemingly good cellaring prospects.
Una Volta’ means ‘One Time’. The nature of this fruit, being from a warm and vibrantly fruity year, presented an exceptional situation where Blank Canvas decided to use only the free-run portion, such was the power and density of the wine following fermentation. It is gloriously immense, with black fruit compote, warm baking spice notes and a rich velvety texture. Maintaining a minimalist philosophy, it was bottled without filtration which means nothing is taken away though a natural deposit will occur over time.
