NEW ZEALAND Sileni Cellar Selection Pinot Noir
Grown in cooler Hawke’s Bay sub regions, on a variety of soil types. Gravels provide structure, length and perfumed aromatics, while the clay soils provide roundness, sweet fruit and savoury characters. Grapes were fermented in closed top stainless steel tanks, with gentle maceration via rummage and pump-overs to extract colour and tannins. Only a small portion of oak was used to highlight aromatics and provide extra richness to the palate.
The nose has an enticing note of freshly baked Bakewell tart, all homemade jam and almonds. In the mouth, it’s fresh and bright with a fine almond skin appeal. The wine remains fresh throughout with a lovely defining acidity which makes this a great food match.
