Description

The Brightwater Pinot Noir vines are grown in an extremely stony area of the vineyard where water and nutrient levels are low. This helps us to restrict the plants vigour and to crop at low levels. To further enhance the aromatics we removed leaves to allow light penetration and air movement around the fruiting zone. The Brightwater vineyard is situated 15km from the coast and is sheltered from the south by the Richmond ranges. The ‘soil’ is a combination of rocks and boulders, which is very hard on the farm equipment, but vital for holding the warmth of Nelson’s sun and for ripening.

TASTING NOTES

The 2018 Aotea Pinot Noir has a fine nose with varietal notes of bright berry and dried thyme. Generous and flavoursome with bright fruit and supple oak tannins running the length of the palate leaving a long lasting impression.
