True to Stoneleigh style, this soft, supple Pinot Noir captures the essence of Marlborough, New Zealand's most acclaimed winemaking region. This fragrant, well-integrated Pinot Noir has been crafted from small, concentrated grapes with classic Marlborough Pinot Noir flavours.
This 2003 Pinot Noir displays a fragrant bouquet of red berry fruit aromas, black cherry and savoury spice with subtle hints of toasted oak. Ripe red berry fruit flavours dominate. The palate is soft and supple with lingering sweet fruit and fine, velvety tannins.
Best enjoyed as an accompaniment to succulent red meat dishes such as spring lamb, duck, game and veal. Dishes featuring mushrooms and red berry fruit will also complement this Pinot Noir beautifully.
