Clouston & Co Marlborough Pinot Noir 2020
A rich Pinot Noir outfitted with aromas of dark cherry, plum and pomegranate notes with hints of lavender, exotic spice and herbs. Softly textured and medium-bodied with red fruits on the palate, underpinned by a savoury earthiness and a satifyingly persistent finish. Decant before serving to allow it's full character to develop.
Winemaker David Clouston continues a 100-year-old legacy in the family wine business. Dedicated to his craft, he believes it's his resonsibility to blend together science with the finest characteristics of his home region of Marlborough – the climate, the water, and the soil – to produce wines his great great Grandfather would be proud of.
David Clouston's unique approach to winemaking employs a variety of methods. This is a truly artisanal Pinot – hand-harvested fruit, fermented with wild yeasts, and bottled un-fined to maximise aroma, flavour and texture. Aged in seasoned French oak barriques for 11 months.
