Winemaker's Notes:

Our philosphy is to produce a distinctive Marbrough Pinot Noir and the 2008 is no exception. A wonderful core of spice, ripe fragrant plum, and broading forest fruits command the aromatics. The tannins are long, chewy and silky, coupled with sublime acid balance. Adding structure and natural weight to the subtle French oak, spice and coca notes. A hall mark of Whither Hills Pinot Noir is the purity of fruit; dark dense generous elegant flavors and subtle power.

The Wairau Valley is the major grape growing area of Marlborough bordered by the landmark range of hills to the South - the Wither Hills. The vineyards flourish in free draining, silty alluvial loam over deep stony river deposits, providing a near perfect growing environment.

Wither Hills is founded on the sincere belief that the finest wines are always created from exceptional vineyards. The combination of winemaking and viticultural expertise is a powerful one that yields genuine rewards for those who appreciate premium wines.
