"This 4 Hectare block is situated on Auntsfield's steepest hillside where the Kahu, the native Harrier Hawks, fly the thermal air currents hunting for their prey. This old block of Pinot Noir is one of Marlborough's oldest on Hill side plantings. Deep red colour. On the nose there is berry fruit and dark plum aromas are complimented by savoury and gamey complexing characters including violets and dried spice. Rich and ripe on the palate. Very nice upfront weight with generous fruit and volume. Lashings of oak and tannin give this wine a bold and lengthy structure."
