    Winemaker Notes

    The 2005 season in Martinborough delivered a light crop with intense color and ripe flavors and tannins. This Martinborough Pinot Noir was made with traditional Burgundian techniques including a prefermentation maceration, which allows wild yeast to initiate the fermentation and a post-fermentation maceration to ensure the complex tannin structure. After pressing it was matured in French oak casks for 12 months.

    Deep red color. Intense ripe fruit flavors of ripe plum and red and black berry fruits backed by nice oak characters. The palate is full of ripe flavors and tannins and is round and lingering.

    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.

    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.”
