Winemaker's Notes

As a region, Martinborough's name is becoming known worldwide, with outstanding international wine awards, particularly for classic varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc. Though small by world standards, Te Kairanga is one of Martinborough's largest wine producers, and a leader in striving for quality.

This Pinot Noir displays a medium purple color. Aromas of fresh cherries, omega plums and a hint of chocolate dominate the nose. An underlying spicy, mushroom complexity is quite evident. Sweet fruit dominates and delivers a big, textured, and concentrated palate with persistence and length. The silky tannin structure and subtle oak treatment complement the rich fruit, giving a beautifully integrated and balanced wine. This wine is ready to drink now. Pair this with red meats, game and mature cheeses.

"Tart, tangy and distinctive for its raw-edge style, offering blueberry, dusky spice and metal flavors that linger on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2007."- 88 pts- Wine Spectator, November 2003
