Maori Point Vineyard
2020 Gold Digger Pinot Noir
With a nod to the gold mining history of Central Otago and of Māori Point in particular (our site is named for the Māori gold diggers who lived in this area in the 1860s), this is our early-release barrel-selected Pinot Noir, emphasizing youthful intensity and balance across fruit, spice, earth and floral notes. The bouquet shows cherries and floral notes, accented by hints of spice, mushroom, and game. The palate is well-composed, supple yet lively, with excellent fruit purity and intensity brought together by the silky texture and polished tannins. Hand harvested from our single vineyard, fermented by the wild yeasts from the vineyard, unfined, unfiltered, vegan friendly, and with minimal sulfites. Dangerously delicious!
