Winemaker Fiona Turner has worked with Matt Thomson on many of the most successful wines made in Marlborough. The Tinpot Hut wines are made predominantly with grapes from Fiona's own vineyard in Blind River, in the Awatere, supplemented by fruit from growers that Fiona and Matt work with throughout the year.
This Pinot Noir is ruby red in colour with a purple hue. It has intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry and plum mingle with a hint of redcurrant. Savoury mushroom and toasty oak characters complete the attractive nose. On the palate, it has classic black cherry notes that dominate and are supported by hints of bramble, reflecting the aromatics. Structurally, the tannins are soft and silky, and well-balanced acidity ensures good length and weight. Match with lamb, duck and venison dishes, and firm cheeses.
