Although best known for its succulent Sauvignon Blancs, Marlborough on the northeastern tip of the South Island also offers ideal conditions for Pinot Noir. Here, on the banks of the Opawa River, David Clouston has built his very own little slice of heaven in a small black cottage surrounded by vineyards and olive groves. After spending years making wine in Corsica, the USA and southern France, Black Cottage’s fun-loving owner and winemaker realised he wanted to return home and make delicious wines that offer incredible value and are perfect for sharing with friends.
David carefully selects the grapes for this Pinot Noir from the Wairau and Awatere Valleys before fermenting them in stainless steel to emphasise the fresh red berry character that is so typical of the varietal. The result is a lively Pinot explodes out of the glass with ripe raspberry and red cherry aromas, while the first sip reveals a silky smooth mouthfeel and wild berry flavours.
David ages a portion of the wine in large French oak casks for 10 months, adding gentle hints of cedar, cinnamon and nutmeg to the ripe, fruity character. This easy-going Pinot is a great choice to share amongst friends on its own or pair it with roast duck or lamb for the perfect leisurely weekend gathering.
