Te Kairanga Estate Martinborough Pinot Noir 2022 750ml

At Te Kairanga, we have 250 acres of vines planted at four vineyard sites in the Martinborough appellation. This diversity provides our winemaking team with a wide array of aromatics, flavours, textures and styles to work with. The martin borough Terrace, considered one of the premier growing areas, is home to our Home and Mcleod Vineyards. Once an ancient riverbed, it features deep gravel and alluvial soils and a mild climate. At slightly higher elevations with more extreme conditions are our Spring Rock and Rua vineyards. All of our properties are sustainably farmed.

Under the direction of Chief Winemaker, John Kavanagh, our winemaking philosophy places a premium on the character of the site. 2014 was a very early season from budburst through to harvest, with low rainfall and sunny conditions through the peak of summer, hastening ripening. Fruit was harvested at optimum flavour development from our Home and McLeod Vineyards. Of the nine clones that were selected, each parcel was vinified separately in small fermenters before being pressed off and matured for 10 months in French oak barrels (20% new). Light filtering was done prior to bottling

Alc: 14%
