Pinot Noir 2016

Misty Cove Estate Pinot Noir is made to truly reflect our philosophy of producing a value for money wine with distinctive pure, wonderful fruit flavours and aromas typical of the Marlborough region. 

The wine combines attractive fruit intensity with subtle savoury complexity, displaying dark cherry, plum, clove and nutmeg aromas with a hint of smoked meat. It is succulent and rounded on the palate, and delivers bright fruit flavours backed by polished tannins. Lovely harmony and length. 

Misty Cove Estate Pinot Noir can be enjoyed with a wide range of dishes including lamb, beef, wild meats, stews, curries, pasta and mushrooms. Chill it slightly in the summer months and enjoy it on its own!

Wine Notes

The fruit for this wine was grown in two low cropping vineyards, Spring Creek and Kaituna both located in the Wairau Valley. These small vineyards are extremely unique as they are farmed with limited irrigation, creating small and intensely flavoured berries each year and a yield of 4t/h. In the winery the fruit was immediately de-stemmed and given a cold soak for 96 hours before being gently pressed. The resulting juice was fermented with a mix of cultured and wild yeast in open-top stainless steel fermenters.

Tasting Note

The colour is a delightful ruby red with youthful purple hues and the bouquet shows violets, berry fruit and gentle smoky aromas with red stone fruit, fresh raspberry and subtle earthy characters on the palate, with fine ripe tannins giving way to an elegant and lasting finish.
