Two Paddocks Fusilier Pinot Noir CONFIRM VINTAGE

Pinot Noir Central Otago New Zealand
Sam Neill's father was a major in the Royal Irish Fusiliers, he returned to the family wine and liquor business after retirement and inspired his famous son to take up viticulture. There are six hectares of Fusilier under vine, planted to deep alluvial silty gravels, on a steppe of rolling northerly facing terraces at the western end of Felton Road. A mix of stemmed grapes and whole bunches are filled to 3½ tonne wooden cuvee for several days cold soak and wild yeast ferment, followed by transfer to medium and light toast French oak barriques for eleven months maturation.
Deep scarlet hues. Spicy red fruit notes, dried herb and wildflower bouquets. Beauteous palate of luscious fruit pectin characters, cherries and morello, winegums and jube, sasafras and a robe of gentle spiced carob oak, structured yet deferential tannins in support, a feminine, lithe and textural driven wine, exhibiting great tension and verve, density and persistence.
