WOOLLASTON NELSON PINOT NOIR 2006
Red plum and black cherry marry with subtle oak spice to give a layered, complex aroma. An elegant, integrated palate with harmonious red plum and cherry woven into fine grained, minerally tannins yields to a lingering finish.
Hand harvested between 23/3/2006 & 5/4/06. The grapes were gently destemmed into the fermenter where they spent up to 20 days during fermentation. The wine was racked to French barrels (25% new) for maturation over 10 months. The individual blend components (Clones 667, 777 UCD5, 115 & Abel) were then racked to a blending tank for fining and finishing before being bottled using gravity.

A butterflied leg of lamb marinated in olive oil with sprigs of rosemary before being roasted pink would make a good partner for this smartly balanced Pinot. Serve it with cubes of potato tossed in oil, cracked pepper and sea salt, then baked crisp alongside the meat.
