Vavasour Pinot Noir is a deep garnet color and shows aromatic cherry and spice on the nose. The concentrated palate exhibits
rich dark cherry flavors with a long, soft tannin finish.
The rooster on the label is from the
Vavasour family crest. The Vavasours arrived in New Zealand and established themselves in Marlborough's Awatere Valley in
1890. Nearly a century later in the early 1980's Peter Vavasour took a keen interest in the viticultural developments of the Wairau
Valley to the North in Marlborough.
