Description

Leaving Auckland behind for a new life growing wine in Nelson, 1990 saw Jenny Wheeler and Andrew Greenhough embark on a thrilling and challenging adventure. 25 years on, the wines have a loyal following and always represent excellent value. Made from a whole basket of different Pinot Noir clones produced from vines that date back some 40-odd years, this wine offers incredible depth and complexity that is virtually unheard of at such a modest price. Not only that, in 2008 Greenhough began the process of undergoing organic conversion, and this wine is almost entirely 100% organic, with just a single block of grapes still going through the conversion process to attain certification.

This wine was incredibly well received by Robert Parker's Wine Spectator, the world's leading wine publication, scoring an incredibly high 90/100 from them.

Smells

Wild raspberry and floral characters, with herbal nuances and a lingering touch of savouriness. A truly beguiling nose, impressive.

Tastes

Impressively structured, the fruit washes over the palate in layers, moving from initial blackberry and dark plum, to slightly brighter strawberry and rose petal characters. All the while, the toasty oak and savouriness holds everything all together. A complex wine that offers unheard of value for money, this is Pinot Noir that any enthusiast should be looking to get their hands on!
