Taken off the stunning Eyrie block vineyard, situated on a river terrace in the southern valleys of Marlborough. 2019 was a hot and dry season, with small amounts of rain early summer before a season of unwavering heat. Cool nights and hot days in the Waihopai valley ensured perfect ripening conditions for our Plume Pinot Noir grapes, with small concentrated bunches that were driven with quality and flavour. Fruit for the

2019 Plume was taken from a single clone 114.

This wine received no fining and no filtration so it may have a natural sediment from its time aging in bottle. We didn’t think that Plume needed to have intervention of these winemaking practices because the quality of the fruit was so good, and we didn’t want to take away from any of that. During fermentation, we added 19% whole clusters to create the perfect balance of aromatics and tannin in each sip.

92 | Full and weighty. Bold. Dried herbs and a touch of chanterelle. Fleshy mid palate. Very drying.

89 | Decent colour; deep. ripe stewed fruit aromas, plummy, raspbery jammy, palate sweet at the core then drying after. Refreshing acidity. Quite a nice aged wine

93 | Quite a plump, silky take on pinot noir. Maybe a little over-polished but generous and ripe at first. Just falls away a little on the finish.

90 | dark cherry tart pomegranates, tree bark and black tea bags, the wine is complex layered and fresh very food friendly, and ends with a tight compact finish will be better with food
