ASTROLABE PINOT NOIR COMELYBANK 15
Astrolable - "Sometimes when making a wine there are elements other than pure fruit that I want to showcase, such as texture and complexity. These diverse single vineyard wines, of tiny production, are released under our Vineyards range.
Jeff and Vanessa Hammond grew the Comelybank Pinot Noir on gently sloping alluvial loams in their lower Waihopai Valley vineyard, under the watchful eye of viticulturist Jeremy Hyland. Hand-picked fruit was fermented traditionally using wild yeast, and aged in French oak. The wine is unfiltered and unfined."
