Sherwood Estate Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017
Sherwood Estate Pinot Noir is the signature wine of Sherwood estate. Aromas of violets and wood-smoke follow through to a complex palate of raspberry fruit and spice with a lingering smoky finish.
First planted to vine in 1978 by Jill and Dayne Sherwood, the estate is located in the picturesque Waipara Valley and even after 30 years, you can still find Jill and Dayne in the winery every day. True pioneers of the time, Sherwood were the first to plant Pinot Noir in the region and were also the first winery in the region to be fully accredited under the Sustainable Winegrowers guidelines. Last year, saw Sherwood Estate celebrate 30 years of winegrowing; a stamp of proof that they have firmly established themselves as a producer of outstanding varietally-focussed quality wines at great value.
