Te Kairanga John Martin Pinot Noir 2020 is named after the founding father of Martinborough, John Martin and is crafted from the best vineyard parcels from his original landholdings and some of the oldest vines in the region. 

fruit is derived from nine clones, including the Abel clone, from the Home and McLeods Vineyards. It is hand-picked block by block, hand sorted and destemmed, with 15% whole bunches retained. Whole bunch fermentation helps add intrigue and savoury notes. Fermented with wild yeast and hand plunged, the wine is aged for 10 months in the finest French oak barrels and bottled without filtration.

An elegant bouquet of red plum, bramble blackberry with baking spice leads to a bold richly textured palate. Bursts of dark berry fruits and exotically spiced tannins make this a deep wine with concentration and texture further rewarded with careful cellaring. Best paired with a hearty venison and juniper stew.
