According to the winery, the time when Central Otago will change the world’s view of Pinot Noir is coming soon. Owing to the region’s extreme temperature conditions, Pinor Noir gives an exceptionally rich wine in this region and for the Lands & Legends they select the most exciting parcels from some special vineyards. The result: an intensely flavoured, complex and rich Pinot Noir. Hand harvested, part whole bunch pressing which provides the complexity and the structure. Following the cold soak, it was fermented by parcel, then after pressing, it was aged in new and used French barrels for 10 months. Only the best barrels make it into the Lands & Legends blend. Fresh raspberry and cherry that is followed by clove and forest mushroom. Ripe fruit, plum, gentle spiciness on the palate, with an elegant finish. A concentrated and mellow, classic Central Otago Pinot Noir in its best form.
