Estate Notes

Auntsfiled's Single Vineyard Pinot Noir, 2014 is a quintissential Kiwi Pinot style; rich, silky, concentrated and beautifully textured - simply divine.

Auntsfield's Pinot is hand-harvested and hand-sorted by family members and the care, attention and devotion shines through in the quality of the grapes and wine, which is aged in French oak barriques for approximately 10 months.

Auntsfield continues the proud heritage of being Marlborough’s first vineyard and winery established in 1873, and their Single Vineyard wines are made from grapes solely grown at the estate.

Reviews

“...the 2014 Single Vineyard Pinot Noir has fragrant red rose and baking spice notes over warm red currants, pomegranate and mulberries. Medium-bodied with loads of vibrant red berry and spice box flavors in the mouth, it has beautifully silky tannins and a refreshing finish." eRobertParker.com

“...deeply coloured, mouthfilling, warm and concentrated,with very ripe plum, cherry and spice flavours, nutty and savoury, good tannin backbone and strong personality." Michael Cooper – 5 stars

“From a single block in the southern valleys of Marlborough, matured 10 months in French oak, around 30% of which was new. This is a deep and black-fruited style of concentrated Pinot, 14% alcohol testifying to its ripeness and richness. On the nose a touch of charred meat, savoury dark fruit and, yes, just a glimpse of something more perfumed and floral in the background. On the palate it has a liquorice stripe of bittersweet fruit, tannin and crunchy acidity. The fruit develops nicely mid-palate to something more sweet and elegant." Tom Cannavan, wine-pages.com
