Hunter’s Pinot Noir 2019

This new vintage release is something to look out for.

The 2019 Pinot Noir might be the best we have made so far” proclaims Chief Winemaker, James Macdonald, adding “I am excited to see how it will be received by wine lovers over the coming year”. Aged in French oak barrels for 10 months, this dark fruited wine shows a good concentration and beautiful characteristics of blackcurrant, cinnamon, and raspberry.

 2019 was the first vintage working with a new grower. The Embee vineyard is solely planted with Pinot Noir grapes and is located in the Omaka Valley on a hillside above one of the Hunter’s vineyards. The rich clay soils of the valley have the ability to produce some of the very best Marlborough Pinot Noir. Hunter’s is excited to be working with a significant holding of this special Pinot Noir area.
