About this wine

Stanley Estates Block 8 Pinot Noir is a fabulous medium bodied fruit driven wine which combines appealing fruit richness with a savoury undertone, displaying aromas of red-black plums, raspberries and boysenberries. Soft on the nose, the effect of the oak maturation is subtle developing silky tannins. It is nicely weighted and textured on the palate with lovely generosity, the finish lingering, spicy and delicately dry.  A fantastic match to fine New Zealand Lamb, Asian duck and chicken dishes, Seafood dishes such as Salmon, Teraki, and Tapas including Chorizo, patatas bravas, pimientos asados or simply drunk for pleasure!  Will age perfectly over the next 5 – 8+ years.

    string(578) "If Cabernet Sauvignon is the king of wines then Pinot Noir is the wine of kings. So delicate, pure, feminine and graceful, it is arguably the finest variety in the world, responsible for the great wines of Champagne and Burgundy. Temperamental, yes, and difficult to cultivate, but can any other grape offer such dimensions of flavour or intellectual gratification? I would struggle to find one stronger! Summer berry compote flavours, with redcurrant and pink petal aromas, it is often pale in the glass, yet can offer depth and vigour simply unachievable from any other grape."
