Description

A collection of O:TU’s finest, available only in limited quantities, in selected vintages.
Every so often our Chief Winemaker sees something standout; an outstanding vintage, an exceptional block of vines, expressive minerality, exquisite intensity of fruit – and chooses to capture its finesse. Small parcels, hand selected blocks, often hand harvested & always hand crafted.

Viticulture
Hand picked in the cool of the morning, left to hang late in the harvest for extended ripening and optimal intensity. Perfect fruit, all carefully hand harvested.
Winemaking
Malolactic fermentation started in tank and finished in barrel. Oak regime consists of 12 months French Oak.
Aromas
Fragrant red berry aromas and hints of spice, strawberry, raspberry.
Palate
An opulent, full bodied Marlborough Pinot Noir, hand harvested from a low yielding single vineyard. Fragrant red berry aromas and hints of spice extend to an opulent palate of ripe cherry and dark plum. Beautifully structured with a touch of baroque style from 12 months in French Oak barrels.
