Description

Opawa was originally developed by Nautilus Estate, makers of some of the finest wines out of Marlborough, and eventually purchased by them as well in the early 2000s. Their Pinot Noir is particularly exciting, with a key difference in how it's produced. The grapes for this wine are harvested under moonlight instead of at day, allowing them to retain their natural acidity giving the wine a delightful freshness that makes it pair extremely well with a wide variety of foods. 'Opawa' translates to Smoky River, an appropriate name given the subtle smokiness the aroma has and as such it pairs particularly well with game dishes.

Smells

Generous ripe cherries, a touch of raspberry, wild rosemary. a hint of truffle and a whiff of smoke.

Tastes

Black doris plum and cherry is enveloped with some toasty oak and beautiful herbal notes. The fresh acidity and overall structure of this wine means it is not only an excellent food wine, but it will also age gracefully for the next 5-6 years.

We taste, rate & guarantee every wine we sell.
