In 1994 we established new plantings of Pinot Noir on our Kumeu Estate with the aim of producing red wine to rival the quality of our Kumeu River Chardonnay. To this end only the best new planting material available from Burgundy was chosen, and grafted onto extremely low-vigour rootstocks to limit the yield and intensify the flavour of this wonderfully aristocratic grape variety.
The 2014 vintage was fantastic vintage with generous fruit. We achieved a beautiful ripeness in the Pinot Noir that is reflected in the wine. This is the second time we have released a Pinot Noir exclusively from the Hunting Hill vineyard. The vineyard is situated on a slope overlooking Mate's Vineyard and produced a wine that has aromas of ripe cherries and spice and at the moment displays a lovely purity. No doubt, with bottle age this wine will develop the underlying forest floor aromas that make the wine so complex and interesting. The palate displays the lovely ripe fruit and is lively and fresh with good firm tannin which we expect to mellow with time in bottle over the next five years.
