About the Producer

Boutinot's New Zealand wines are sourced from vineyards in each sub-region of Marlborough - the Awatere, Waihopai and Wairau Valleys, as well as the breezier region of Waipara. These valleys have their own micro-climates and terroir which give a unique personality to the vineyards, grapes and finished wines.

Samantha Bailey brings her blending expertise and experienced palate to the fore in expressing the loveliest Boutinot wines from The Land of the Long White Cloud.

Vineyard and Winery

This Pinot Noir came from 2 vineyards - 87% Rapaura Gravels and 13% Omaka Valley clay soils which included a number of clones, 667,777,115, Abel and Clone 5. Both vineyards were pruned to 2 cane Vertical Shoot Positioning and yields were naturally around the seven tonnes per Hectare mark. After green thinning on the vine the fruit was harvested over a period of 10 days from late March through to early April. Each parcel was kept separate and fermented in small open top tanks and hand plunged up to four times daily. Post pressing, wine was sent to a mixture of stainless steel and French oak for Malolactic Fermentation and ageing.
