Auntsfield Estate 'Heritage' Pinot Noir

Auntsfield continues the proud heritage of Marlborough’s first vineyard and winery established in 1873. Our Single Block wines display qualities distinctive to grapes grown within a defined area at Auntsfield Estate. Consistent quality and character over many vintages has separated these Single Blocks out as producing our Reserve Wines.

This wine is only made when a selection of traditionally made wine from our steepest hill side exhibits the intensity, complexity, balance and sense of place required to honour the heritage of Auntsfield Estate: Marlborough’s first vineyard and winery.

Grape Variety: Pinot Noir

Region: Malborough, New Zealand

Tasting Notes:  Savoury and complex aromas of exotic spices, dark berry fruits and floral notes. Hints of cocoa and leather hit the nose. The palate is immensely dense and concentrated with luscious black fruit flavours integrating with oak spice. The wine has an intense and yet silky fine tannin structure, great length and many years of aging potential.
