Huntress Pinot Noir 2018

Martinborough | $52

The grapes in this wine come from the On Giants Shoulders’ Vineyard in Princess Street, Martinborough, planted in 1986 by the late Jack McCreanor. It’s a co-ferment of hand harvested Pinot Noir clones 5, 828, Abel and 10/5 with 40% whole bunch fermentation with wild yeasts, 28 days on skins and 10 months aging in older French oak barriques followed by six months aging in tank before bottling. Total production of the 2018 Huntress Pinot Noir was 1111 bottles.

Like its lighter bodied sibling, the Huntress rosé, this wine opens up with time, revealing a softer side to its dry, savoury flavours, the day after it’s initially opened. It tastes youthful and its savoury structure suggests it can age and evolve for four to five years and possibly longer. Flavours are of juicy red and dark fruit with a long, succulent finish. Super tasty.
