2022 Black Cottage Pinot Noir, Marlborough, New Zealand

Savory and earthy with bright red cherries, raspberries, and a hint of cinnamon spice. The juicy palate flows through to a fruit-driven core of crunchy red currants, dried cranberries, black olive, and suggestions of toasted coconut. A pinot noir with round tannins, good balance, and finesse.


There are 2 units left in stock.


Sourced from the Southern Valleys, this pinot noir went through fermentation in open top fermenters, with 20% whole bunch and was hand plunged. This brought out the perfumed berry fruit as well as increased the silky mouthfeel of the wine. Aged with French oak.


From the winery: "As a family run winery, sustainability is at the core of everything we do. In Marlborough our backyard is vineyard country and we see it as our duty, as custodians of this land, to boost biodiversity, increase habitat for native bird life and improve soil health. We do this by being part of the Sustainable Winegrowers New Zealand programme. In 2020 we increased biodiversity by planting over 500 native plants on the banks of the Ōpaoa River. Our riparian planting programme will see thousands of native plants established. We use environmentally friendly light weight bottles to reduce carbon emissions. Most of our wines are vegan friendly from the 2020 vintage."
