Profile

"My Wrekin Pinot Noir was grown at Wrekin Vineyard in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys. The vines are closely planted and low-cropping. The Wrekin fruit provides a lot of the structure to our larger Province blend, giving our darkest cherry and plum flavours and the muscular structure and tannin. I have chosen to release this small production wine to highlight the individual expression of this site.

Hand-picked fruit was de-stemmed, cold soaked for seven days, fermented with wild yeast and aged in three French oak barrels for nine months, where it underwent natural malolactic fermentation. The selected barrels were blended and aged for an additional nine months in old oak puncheons."
Simon Waghorn — Winemaker

Critic awards

From the close-planted, low-cropping Wrekin vineyard in the Southern Valleys. Hand-picked bunches were de-stemmed and fermented with wild yeasts before being aged in French barriques for nine months. Selected wines received an additional maturation for nine months in French puncheons.

It’s a dense, flavoursome pinot noir with black-fleshed plum, dark cherry, liquorice, wood smoke and spicy oak flavours. A generously proportioned wine with succulent, ripe fruit flavours to the fore balanced by enough tannin influence to prevent it becoming a simple fruit-bomb.
