Delta Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016
The Delta Farm, on the south side of Marlborough's Wairau Valley, was first established in 1848 and purchased in 2000 by four partners including winemaker Matt Thomson and London-based MW David Gleave. The farm's low-vigour clay soils - as opposed to the high-vigour 'Sauvignon Blanc' loam soils closer to the Wairau River - were identified as perfect for Pinot Noir. The site was planted using the best of the Dijon clones in 2002 and 2003. Lifted notes of violet and ripe cherry, with hints of plum and spice. A silky start and a grainy, mineral-rich finish. Juicy but focused. Drinking beautifully from release date, this wine can be enjoyed young, or with careful cellaring will mature into a more complex wine that can be enjoyed for the next five years. It is well matched with spring lamb.
