Aroha is a romantic word in the Māori language of New Zealand meaning love. Reflective of its namesake, Aroha is handcrafted with passion from two unique parcels of Pinot Noir, including one of the legendary Abel clone. The fruit is grown on a slope of an elevate terrace of fertile land at the Te Muna Road vineyard where an ancient dried river bed delivered nutrient rich soil perfect for growing Pinot Noir.
TASTING NOTE: Pale Burgundy with a purple hue. An elevated menagerie of flavours. Black truffle, fresh picked blueberries, brioche, chanterelle mushroom, lavender and dried goji berries. The palate is the epitome of a peacock feather; the flavour starting modest but fanning out to a length rarely seen in this variety. The tannins are but satin and level of concentration is deftly hidden but a pure acid line. Majestic.
FOOD MATCH: Seared duck breast, satueed mushroom risotto
CELLARING: 2 - 10 years from vintage

ABV: 13%
