Clos Marguerite blends influences from both the old and the new world. The vineyard sits on a gravel terrace of the Awatere River in Marlborough and takes advantage of a terroir undiscovered until recently. Free-draining soils combined with the dry and sunny climate allow us to maintain low vine vigour and for the grapes to reach full aromatic maturity.
A deep, elegant Pinot Noir. The bouquet shows a wide range of aromas; from light fruits cake, fresh dark summer berry fruits - cherry, black current, plum to earthy, nutty, dry forest floor, and spices.
The mouthfeel is rich, powerful with great length. Layers of flavours reflect the complexity of the bouquet. A silky yet firm tannin structure, hallmark of Clos Marguerite, allows the good aging potential of this wine. Delicious!
