Description

Vavasour is the founding winery of Marlborough’s smaller, cooler Awatere Valley and now part of the Foley group. Combine their intimate knowledge of this dramatic Southern pocket of Marlborough and now the guidance and financial support of the Foley empire and you know the wines will be superb. And if this 2021 Awatere Valley Pinot Noir is an indication of things to come, watch this space.

Smells

A more earthy/savoury/smoky style of Marlborough Pinot Noir, showing notes of black tea and smoked bacon to go with all the red and black cherry fruit.

Tastes

a deep colour instantly attracts, combined with the dense, compact yet supple, rounded palate and with mouth coating tannins and a plump fruit core make the wine very attractive in its youth, though it will reward medium-term cellaring through 2028+. Layered with a striking herbal complexity that shows with airtime, and only intrigues more and more. Try it with BBQ pork ribs for a perfect match.
