Library release Pinot Noir from Tongue in Groove

Posted by Joelle Thomson on

Cheeky by name and age worthy by nature, Tongue in Groove's only ever Clayvin Vineyard Pinot Noir has been released in small volumes as a library release this month and we are thrilled to have it in store now. The 2013 Tongue in Groove Pinot Noir costs RRP $55.99 and is a plush and powerful Pinot Noir from one of the great vineyards, Clayvin.

This vineyard was the first hillside site to be planted with grapevines in New Zealand's largest wine region, Marlborough in the early 1990s by Mike Eaton. His visionary viticultural aim was to give grapes an elevated site on which to ripen where cooler than usual nights would provide longevity to the ripening season... 

Remarkable price for the quality

The proof is in the bottle of this stunning aged nine year Pinot Noir, which was made with 40% whole bunch fermentation from the relatively warm, relatively dry 2013 vintage in Marlborough. This wine has been superbly aged in cool temperature controlled conditions and is now available to lovers of great wine. The price is remarkable, considering the quality. 

Tongue in Groove is now owned by winemaker Lynnette Hudson, who is the long term winemaker for the brand. Watch this space for exciting new wines from Hudson's experienced winemaking hand.
