A brilliant value Pinot Noir from award winning producer Mount Brown, located in New Zealand’s Waipara Valley. Named Wild River as the vineyard is planted on an old river bed, which provides the ideal soil conditions for making great wine. With plum and ripe berry flavours complemented by hints of spice. Oak ageing and malolactic fermentation have resulted in a complex and well balanced wine with generous palate.
New Zealander still red wine from Waipara New Zealand, made with Pinot Noir.
Lying in the foothills of Mount Brown in Waipara Valley this abandoned wine estate was only rediscovered 15 years ago and it is something of a success story. Waipara has a greater variation in temperature between night and day than more northerly Marlborough, yields are much lower, and this valley is fast establishing a reputation for quality. Aromatic grape varieties such as Pinot Gris, and also Pinot Noir, are perfectly suited to Mount Brown’s small sheltered stony site and wine making here is of a very high order. View our selection.
