2021 Hawkshead Reserve Pinot Noir

The Hawkshead Pinot Noir ‘Reserve’ is a new addition to our portfolio of wines and an exclusive blend of fruit from the Lowburn & Gibbston sub-regions.

The wine is medium-bodied and of excellent concentration. Elegant finesse leads to a soft palate, and delicious impressions of brooding dark fruits emerge; plums, Black Boy peaches and ripe cherries. Those flavours are in harmony with lingering dried herbs and a sprinkle of black pepper. Add a memory of dark chocolate, and you will approach Pinot Noir haven.

Refined acidity and integrated velvety tannins lead to a long, harmonious finish. This astounding blend of rounder ripe Lowburn and more savoury slower ripening Gibbston fruit is a classic Central Otago Premium Pinot Noir and will cellar exceptionally well.

Sub-Region: Lowburn and Gibbston

The is wine made from slower ripening Gibbston grapes, with their restrained savoury flavours. Combining it with the warmer and earlier ripening grapes of Lowburn elevates this wine into a quintessential Central Otago Pinot Noir experience.

Colour: Plum purple red   

The wine is medium-bodied and, on the palate, soft with elegant finesse. Delicious impressions of dark fruits emerge; plums,  Sanguine peaches and ripe cherries. Those flavours are in harmony with lingering dried herbs a sprinkle of black pepper. Dark chocolate and mocha linger faintly in the back.

This wine shows excellent concentration, subtle, refined acidity and integrated velvety tannins, and those attributes lead to a long, harmonious finish. This astounding, compelling blend is a classic Central Otago Premium Pinot Noir and will cellar exceptionally well.

It is delightfully expressive and delicious now and will be very much appreciated by Pinot Noir aficionados in time (10 + years). Our goal is to make wine with minimal intervention and let the grapes speak for themselves, which means maximum flavour.
