Mission Estate Otago Reserve Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Central Otago New Zealand
From a single elite parcel in the Cromwell basin of Central Otago, a challenging site of gravel clays which encourage the vines to struggle for their nourishment, yielding limited harvests of intensely flavoured Pinot Noir. Grapes are all hand picked and completely destemmed for several days of ferment and a fortnight on skins, followed by a year's age in exclusively French oak.
