Description

With vines planted way back in the 1990s and 2000s under previous ownership, Luna Estate has recently taken over and is getting much more from these exciting vineyards, crafting some superb Martinborough wines including this striking value, very approachable Estate Pinot Noir. Unlike their top-tier single vineyard wine, this Pinot draws fruit from both Eclipse and Blue Rock estates enabling a harmonious, lively, consistent Pinot every year. No expense was spared winemaking including 100% French barrel maturation (10% new) for at least 12 months. Enjoy this Pinot with duck salad or an array of beef and lamb dishes.

Smells

Bright red berry fruit, dried herbs, subtle spice and wild flowers... an exciting aromatic moment.

Tastes

Silky and opulent with balanced ripe plum and raspberry, off-set by dried thyme and subtle oak. Very soft, chalky tannins provide great length in this surprisingly complex and layered Pinot that is challenging value mid $20's. Enjoy now through 2021-2023.
