The best New Zealand Pinots represent a Serious threat to Burgundy's finest. The price of these wines will increase significantly upon arrival into Australia, so pre purchase is advised.
The winemaking team at Alana Estate consider 2006 to be one of the strongest vintages for Pinot Noir that they’ve experienced. Vintage conditions were exceptional - a hot spring with low winds advanced the grapes structural development, whilst late Summer and early Autumn experienced lower than average temperatures resulting in a long extended ripening period to provide winemaker Chris Archer with fruit of perfect health and optimal ripeness. The fruit was harvested over a 5 week period and in order to provide the maximum number of final blending options it was picked in 24 separate parcels based on different clones and the vineyard’s various micro terrior. During the winemaking process these parcels were also kept separate as best as possible or blended with similar styled blocks. Maturation then took place in a variety of French oak for 11 months before final blending.
Deep crimson colour with deep mauve crimson hue. Medium body. Superb nose of violets, spice, cherry and strawberry showing impressive intensity. Mouthfilling palate – a very spicy Pinot, with flavours of dark cherry and hints of anise. Excellent power wave with perfect balance and fine tannins. Very long, persistent aftertaste.
