Winemaker Notes

The 2017 vintage radiates its typical warmth and freshness with red and blue fruits layered over earthy aromatics. Sleek yet firm tannins frame the silken palate.

Critical Acclaim

RP 91
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Sourced from 13-year-old vines in the Omaka Valley, the 2017 Settlement Vineyard East Slope Pinot Noir offers complex aromas of rose hips, dried flowers and ripe cherries. It's medium-bodied and silky in texture but not as forward as expected, instead finishing dry and savory. It should drink well for at least 3-4 years.

Corofin, New Zealand
Corofin  Winery Image
Corofin is an artisan family wine company in Marlborough, New Zealand launched in 2014 by Mike and Anna Paterson. Their sole ambition is to transmit the voice of the land and the season through crafting small single block wines from pinot noir and chardonnay grapes. Working with trusted and admired friends who farm their land with respect for the biodiversity of its soils and local environment, is essential in revealing the individuality of each place. Mike and Anna have lived in Marlborough for most of their careers and in that time have been lucky enough to gain considerable experience growing, making and marketing Marlborough wine. From their early days in the region, they had a desire to start their own small wine label, to be established without compromise for quality and with complete authenticity. It was the emergence of hillside pinot noir plantings in Marlborough that captivated their imagination and cemented their desire to establish their label as a way to shine a light on some pretty special sites. Corofin and the Paterson family are inextricably linked through people and place. Corofin village, situated on the river Fergus in County Clare Ireland, was the home of Clifden House, the residence of Marcus Joseph Paterson and his young family before emigrating to New Zealand. The significance of Corofin as a spiritual home to the Paterson family has been recognized by every generation since Marcus and his family settled in Hawkes Bay in 1927.

An icon and leading region of New Zealand's distinctive style of Sauvignon blanc, Marlborough has a unique terroir, making it ideal for high quality grape production (of many varieties). Despite some common generalizations, which could be fairly justified given that Marlborough is responsible for 90% of New Zealand's Sauvignon blanc production, the wines from this region are actually anything but homogenous. At the northern tip of New Zealand’s South Island, the vineyards of Marlborough benefit from well-draining, stony soils, a dry, sunny climate and wide temperature fluctuations between day and night, a phenomenon that supports a perfect balance between berry ripeness and acidity.

The region’s king variety, Sauvignon blanc, is beloved for its pungent, aromatic character with notes of exotic tropical fruit, freshly cut grass and green bell pepper along with a refreshing streak of stony minerality. These wines are made in a wide range of styles, and winemakers take advantage of various clones, vineyard sites, fermentation styles, lees-stirring and aging regimens to differentiate their bottlings, one from one another.

Also produced successfully here are fruit-forward Pinot noirs (especially where soils are clay-rich), elegant Riesling, Pinot gris and Gewürztraminer.

Thin-skinned, finicky and temperamental, Pinot Noir is also one of the most rewarding grapes to grow and remains a labor of love for some of the greatest vignerons in Burgundy. Fairly adaptable but highly reflective of the environment in which it is grown, Pinot Noir prefers a cool climate and requires low yields to achieve high quality. Outside of France, outstanding examples come from in Oregon, California and throughout specific locations in wine-producing world. Somm Secret—André Tchelistcheff, California’s most influential post-Prohibition winemaker decidedly stayed away from the grape, claiming “God made Cabernet. The Devil made Pinot Noir.”
