Toa Pinot Noir
Outside Burgundy Central Otago is arguably noted as one of if not the finest region in the world to successfully grow high quality and distinctive Pinot Noir
The vines are defined by small canopy, deep roots, resulting in small concentrated berries with maximum colour and flavour. All grapes were hand picked over an extended period of time. The grapes were then desteemed, crushed, cold soaked, hand plunged in small open top fermenters before being pressed off into French oak barriques for nine months maturation, prior to blending, fining and bottling.
The result is deep rich ruby colour. Dark and brambly with ripe spice and plum characters, concentrated and firm. Full bodied yet supple with real depth and complexity.
