Winemaker's Notes

The fruit for this wine came from the Cromwell basin (80%) and the Gibbston Valley (20%) The 2006 growing season provided the perfect growing conditions for premium Pinot Noir resulting in Peregrine's earliest harvest to date.

The wine was pressed to French oak barrels (35% new) where it spent 10 months. The wine was racked from barrel and lightly filtered before being bottled.

The 2006 Peregrine Pinot Noir has great depth of color. The nose has mocha, fresh fruit and spice while the palate overflows with dark fruits such as plums and cherries, spice and ample tannin to match the fruit and insure the wine will last for years to come.
