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