  • 2013 Vintage

    29 July at 10:39 from atlas

    The 2013 vintage is the best vintage I have known with droughts and wild fires all over Canterbury and the country, the incredible heat units which ripened Pinot Noir in Canterbury to 25 Brix in March on the beautiful North facing terraced slope of Bentwood Vineyard, It is our first season at this site and I am amazed at the Pinot Noir wine now mailly clone 667 in three year old barrels now showing a color depth like no other Pinot Noir I have previously produced and with low acidity comes a silky smooth rich palate blessed with aromas of figs licorice, dark cherries and Chocolate and a palate with strong flavous of dark cherries, plums and blueberries.
