Bottle Description

This wine was grown on the Barton Vineyard, Huangarua Road, Martinborough from vines 24 years old. A combination of deep alluvial gravels which the Martinborough Terraces are renowned for and a blend of many clones grown in a very sheltered spot always rewards us with a classic example of New World Pinot Noir. It was fined to protect the flavours and aid brightness in the glass. Bottled without filtration, promoting soft mouth feel and texture. It has a unique site derived complexity and texture combined with black cherry/plum fruit flavours. It will continue to develop for up to 10 years and will always be a wonderful counterpart to any game food. Robert Parker Rating: 93+ points - Drink Date: 2020 - 2030 - "From a vineyard planted 30 years ago to a mix of clones, the 2017 Te Rehua Pinot Noir is one of the stars of a difficult vintage. It follows McLenna's recent strategy of including a large proportion of stems, but it balances that element with ripe, black-cherry flavors. It's medium to full-bodied, rich and concentrated, with firm but velvet-coated tannins and a long, long finish."
