HUNTRESS KURATEA PINOT NOIR (CHILLED RED) 21
Kuratea is the Maori word for light red, which captures perfectly the aim of winemaker Jannine Rickards in making this super tasty, lively young new Pinot Noir.
This wine builds on her previous Waikura Rosé, morphing into a lighter bodied red wine with structure and flavour interest but freshness that suits being served as a lightly chilled wine. So refreshing and deliciously different as an alternative to a bright new white wine.
It's made from grapes grown in Martinborough and Gladstone in the Wairarapa. Partial whole cluster fermentation at cool temperatures provides pronounced summer berry flavour notes of raspberry and cherries with a dried herb taste on the finish.
It was bottled with a minimal addition of sulphur dioxide of 30ppm.
