Spy Valley Pinot Noir


Marlborough, NZ

Pinot Noir is hand-harvested from vines in our Marlborough vineyard, gently separated from the stems and fermented in small, traditional open-top vats. These vats are hand-plunged to extract colour and tannin, and after pressing the wine is aged in French oak barrels. Fruit-driven in style with soft tannins and spicy oak.

Vineyards: Johnson Estate, Outpost, Southern Valley Growers

Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Winemakers: Paul Bourgeois and Kathy-Lee Sowman

Winemaking: Fruit was hand picked, then fermented in open vats. Fermentation started naturally with ‘wild’ yeasts, after which the wine was pressed off the skins and aged in oak barrels for 9 months.

Colour: Garnet

Palate: A multi-layered wine delivering sweet fruit, and a creamy mid-palate. Savory hints are seen behind the typical licorice and red fruit characters of our vineyards.
