Yet another Marquis Exclusive from Winemakers Ant Moore & Ben Halliday! He is the producer of the Signature Sauvignon Blanc and Estate Sauv Blanc that both bear his name. Both creations were very well received by our clients and staff alike. According to Moore, Spinning Top is about simple pleasures derived from nature.
"The wines can be either single vineyard or blends, depending on what makes the strongest and most interesting wine. Having spent a good amount of time making organic and low input wines, I have brought this approach to Spinning Top, whereby, I let the fruit and environment do the work and I just set the wheels in motion so to speak. With low sulphur regimes, the use of wild ferments, extended lees ageing, and the occasional influence of oak, the wines represent the uniqueness of the sites in which the grapes grow, with complexity derived from the forces of nature and judicious blending." -- Winemaker
Juicy and rich Pinot Noir out of Marlborough that shows aromas of red fruits and dark cherries. The palate is medium-bodied, bright and fruity, with a bit of toasty oak, mellow tannins, and a fresh, vibrant finish. You'll love the slight spiciness and feel good knowing it's all-natural. Try this with mushroom risotto and roasted duck.
