Yealands Estate Pinot Noir

Origin

Yealands Estate Pinot Noir is from Marlborough New Zealand.  Peter Yealand’s vision also encompassed the foundation of a business that sets a gold standard in terms of environmental sustainability, from its carbon neutral winery to the widespread adoption of low-impact winemaking methods. Peter has a track record and his successes have been chronicled in a book “A Bloke For All Seasons – the Peter Yealands story”.

Style

Yealands Estate Pinot Noir is a bright, ruby hued wine with aromas of black cherry, violets and savoury spice on the nose. A fleshy palate with notes of plum and spice, silky tannins and a firm finish.

Food Match

Goes great with Lamb & Duck. However this wine is also fine enough to pair with white meats and some fish.

Awards
