Winemaker Notes

A warm year has produced a rich, concentrated and elegant Pinot Noir with supple savory tannins. In its youth the nose shows black cherry, dark chocolate and Asian spice notes that will typically change to savory, earthy characters as the wine ages. On the palate the layers of dark fruits are beautifully entwined with soft, velvet tannins and a seamless texture. This wine exhibits power and poise and will age gracefully for 10+ years.

Critical Acclaim

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Aged one-third in new oak for 12 months, the 2008 Pinot Noir has brambly dark fruit on the nose with notes of wild hedgerow, a touch of strawberry, crushed stone all with fine definition, yet demonstrating a sense of restraint. The palate is medium-bodied with dark berry fruit, dark cherry, apricot and Chinese 5-spice. Good acidity, spicy towards the finish with moderate length, this is a Pinot with good 'stuffing' and it should age well over 5-8 years. Drink 2011-2018.

Martinborough, New Zealand
Martinborough Vineyard was founded in 1980, when five enthusiasts - Derek Milne, his brother Duncan, Duncan's wife Claire Campbell, Russell Schultz and his wife Sue - planted vines in the deep alluvial gravels. The arrival of Larry McKenna towards the end of 1985 added a winemaker and sixth partner to the venture and began what has become a Martinborough winemaking success story. It is a track record of consistent excellence which most can only marvel at. At a national level, Martinborough Vineyard has won gold medals or better for every Pinot Noir since 1986. In 1989, it won no less than five trophies at one show - for best Muller Thurgau, Riesling,Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Best Wine.

Part of the Wairarapa region in the southern end of the country’s North Island, Martinborough is a bucolic appellation full of artisan, lifestyle wine producers. Above all else, their goals are to tend vineyards for low yields and create wines of supreme quality. Pinot noir is the main grape variety here, occupying over half of the land under vine.

Comparing topography, climate and soils, the region is nearly identical to Marlborough except that it produces top quality reds on the regular.
