The Darling Pinot Noir

Cracka Value Rating

Cracka Review

There's a goodly amount of 'feel good' factor with this pinot noir out of Marlborough. The fruit is sourced from organic vineyards, and a 'hands off' approach has been adopted in the winery. Aromas of dark cherry and berry fruits rise from the glass, together with hints of earthy and anise spices. The palate is medium-bodied and elegant with more cherry and plum flavours, lacy tannins, poised acidity, and a smooth, spicy finish. A nice rabbit stew would be the bomb with this!

Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were sourced from three organic vineyards in Marlborough, located in two sub regions of the Wairau Valley. The Southern Valleys and the Upper Wairau region of Fareham Lane. The vines were low yielding giving great concentration.

This wine has been made in an old world style with minimal intervention. It is soft with great texture and has flavours of dark cherry, aniseed and plums. A refined mid palate, with fine tannins and great length of flavour.

This wine will drink well anytime complementing red meats and cheese. Drink now and until 2020.
