Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Mohua Pinot Noir has aromas of violets, dried fruits and cherry. The palate has sweet cherry, plum and raspberries with full mouth feel, fine tannin structure and a long warm finish.

About Mohua:

Mohua Wines was founded in 2009 to create exceptional wines from some of New Zealand’s highest quality regions. Driven by one family’s passion for great wine-making, our focus is on merging that vision with sustainable practices to craft wines that capture the essence of their environment, while improving the land that creates them. Owned and managed by two generations of the McLachlan family, Mohua Wines combines a talent and love for great wine-making with the desire to preserve and enhance the land from which it comes. Motivated by the wish to create lasting wines from some of the finest grape sources in the southern hemisphere, our family is intimately involved with every aspect of the business, bringing a balance of professional expertise and agricultural skill to every stage of production. Great wine begins in the vineyard – we help it on its journey.

The Mohua is one of New Zealand’s rarest birds, being found now only in some of the most remote parts of the South Island - Mohua Wines is proud to be involved the conservation efforts of this stunning chorister.

Mohua offers wines from two of New Zealand’s best known wine regions - Mohua Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough and Mohua Pinot Noir from Central Otago.
