Description

Waipara Valley is rapidly gaining a reputation for small, cult producers making some of the country’s finest wines. And Pinot Noir is a variety that excels in this mesoclimate, and especially when the vines are grown on the clay/limestone soils found on the gentle North facing slopes of the region. Tongue in Groove, a small, cult producer makes this single vineyard (Cabal Vineyard) Pinot Noir, found on these such slopes, using 45% whole bunches, natural yeast, matured in French oak for 16 months and bottled unfined and unfiltered. A wine that truly speaks of the vineyard, variety and region. A wine with 5 years bottle age and drinking superbly now and through 2024.

Smells

a complex savoury bouquet with dark berry fruit, red cherries, crushed thyme, black liquorice with forest floor and spice nuances.

Tastes

A very concentrated Pinot Noir with the typical savoury complexity inherent to Waipara and the classic, firm tannins giving structure, balance and drinkability. The wine opens in the glass more and more with every swirl, giving way to black fruits, dark chocolate and a herbal complexity. This wine will engage, intrigue, and satisfy on every level, superb drinking. Partner with gamey meats.
