Winemaker's Notes

The 2002 season provided ideal conditions for Pinot Noir, producing some of the highest quality fruit we have seen in recent vintages. Warm, but not too hot days and cold nights have resulted in vibrant fruit flavours and soft persistent tannins. The 2002 Dashwood Pinot Noir was hand harvested from selected Wairau and Awatere Valley vineyards. Tannin and colour were extracted using traditional hand plunging techniques. This wine has a bright garnet colour in the glass. The nose shows spicy cherry fruit, with hints of black plum. The silky textured palate has rich plum flavours, and a long, soft tannin finish. The 2002 Dashwood Pinot Noir is ready to drink now, and will show its best over the next one to two years.

"The ruby-colored 2002 Pinot Noir offers aromas of roasted black fruits. Chocolate-laced blackberries can be found in this soft, satin-textured, medium-bodied character. An easy going offering."
-Wine Advocate
