Hinton Barrel Selection Pinot Noir 2007
Hinton Estate Pinot Noir 2008 Bottle
Tasting notes
A bold, beautiful wine with aromatic red fruit character on the nose and a ripe and juicy palate with hints of spice and savoury minerality.
Winemaker's notes
This is the first barrel selection we have made, 2007 was an exeptional vintage in Central Otago with some of the best quality fruit harvested to date. At blending time I purposely hand selected certain outstanding barrels to produce this rich wine. All of the barrels were brand new (which means 100% new French Oak), and the wine spent nearly 12 months maturing in them. The big fruity flavours and oak combine well together to create a diverse and complex wine. It has the silky tannins and smooth finish which are characteristics of the Pinot Noir we produce.
