2023 Estate Pinot Noir

Misty Cove’s Estate Pinot Noir is lovingly handcrafted and produced from our Lower and Upper Wairau Valley vineyards where mature vines give opulent flavours that provide fruit lift and fragrance.

Aromas of vibrant red fruits and dried spice lead to a smooth and rounded palate. Polished tannins add structure to help deliver a delightful example of Pinot Noir that can be enjoyed now or over the coming 3-5 years.

Perfect pairing

Picture this: a juicy New Zealand lamb rack cooked to perfection. The tender meat pairs seamlessly with the smooth palate of our Pinot, enhancing its vibrant red fruit flavours and subtle spice hints. It's a match made in culinary heaven.

Winemaking

The fruit was handpicked from individual vineyard blocks and kept
separate until final blending. Each parcel was fermented in small stainless steel open top fermenters, plunged lightly up to three times daily. They were pressed off gently and left to mature in French oak barriques for 8 months prior to bottling.
