Kahurangi Mount Arthur Reserve Pinot Noir 2019




The Reserve Mount Arthur Pinot Noir is crafted from premium grapes gathered from two selected vineyards in the Nelson region of New Zealand. Initial fermentation is carried out in open fermenters with hand plunging for 4 weeks then concluded with 100% French oak barrel maturation over the following 13 months.

Dark garnet red coloured with good depth; an elegant and fruit driven nose with a bouquet of red fruit and spice leads to a full ripe palate of rich berry fruits with soft tannins. Beautifully balanced with great texture, complex layers of black pepper, cinnamon and red cherry commands a concentrated, unfiltered, full flavour finish.

An ideal match for honey braised duck or spring lamb.

Producer: Kahurangi Estate

Kahurangi Estate is a family owned boutique vineyard dedicated to producing hand-made, sustainable premium wines from their cool-climate Nelson, South Island location. Greg and Amanda Day moved back home to New Zealand with their young family in 1998, to purchase the existing Vineyard in Upper Moutere and develop the Kahurangi brand.

Along with their daughter Samantha as part of the management team, they have focused on cultivation of Pinot Noir, Riesling, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc amongst others from their vineyards which have the oldest commercial vines in the South Island. They bottles some of their reserve wines in honour of Mount Arthur, one of the highest mountains in the Kahurangi National Park. Standing at 1,795 metres above sea level it makes a majestic backdrop to the Kahurangi Estate vineyard.

Chief wine-maker Neil Todd has been with Kahurangi Estate since April 2000, ably assisted by Burgundy specialist and oenologist Emmanuelle David, and all efforts combined have resulted in Kahurangi winning international acclaim and critic's awards for their range of estate bottled and Mount Arthur special selection wines alike.
