Deep garnet hue with intense aromas of cherry, blackberry, cedar, wild thyme, mushroom and earthy loam. The cooler 2019 vintage has delivered an elegant wine with great concentration and a remarkable core with layers of dark red fruit, wild herb and distinctive earthy flavours complementing a highly focused palate with great intensity and length. Silky fine tannins, vibrant fruit and intense aromas complement a serious structure with so much finesse. Enjoy with chicken in a mushroom sauce.

    Description

    It was the sea and not the land that originally lured Wild Earth Wines and Stoaker Room owner Quintin Quider to New Zealand. Being a commercial diver, he fell in love with the South Island’s rugged landscape, but most of all with its people, which inspired the move from South California to Stewart Island. Food and wine were always a passion, so developing a bond with Central Otago Pinot Noir was an easy, natural, next step. After a series of ear problems Quintin decided to hang up his wetsuit and begin his next journey, Wild Earth Wines.

      Red fruit, jam of red berries, white pepper, fine herbs. Elegant wine, fine tannins, and a long finish.

    You can expect elegance and purity of fruit in this sappy Pinot Noir. There's plenty of aromatic lift, with around one-fifth of the fruit whole- bunch fermented, giving anise and thyme seasoning to the damson and black cherry fruit. Light in body and rather delicate, offering lots of concentration on the midpalate. Oak use is subtle, adding a savory cedar note beneath the fruit. The combination of fresh acidity and taut chalky tannins provides purpose on the medium-length finish.
