Foxes Island Artist Series Pinot Noir 2014 750ml

In 2014, Foxes Island founder and winemaker John Belsham crafted two special wines for the Artist Series; a Pinot Noir and La Lapine, a renowned Sauvignon Blanc from the Belsham Awatere Estate in Marlborough. The labels feature the artwork Sunbird Karaoke, by New Zealand artist Kirsty Black.   

Sunbird Karaoke symbolises a beacon of light and the joy of living life fully, whilst fostering harmony, laughter, and support without judgment.

Why we should age Pinot Noir is exemplified with this Artist Series release Pinot Noir.  Aromas of fresh and aged cherry fruits, sweet and preserved plums, complexities from bottle age, and fragrances of earth, stones, roses and barrel spices. Taut and dry on the palate with salivating tannins and acidity then flavours of red berries and plums, savoury dried herbs, and barrel spice qualities. Complex, lengthy, perfectly weighted and ready to drink from 2023 through 2030+.

From the Winemaker, John Belsham

The 2014 vintage offered me the opportunity to create a wine that expresses my love of architecture and design. It was a warm, very even growing season yielding grapes with an intensity of flavour and structure; a benefit of both the vintage and the increasing vine age.  The grapes and resulting juice were gently handled through the entire winemaking process, and the wine naturally settled on its own; thus it is unfined and vegan-friendly.

The resulting Pinot Noir has precise lines and a focused structure that is striking and quite elegant.  Seamless layers of dark cherry, dusty red rose, earthy mushroom, and savoury spice are generous and fine.  5,862 bottles produced.
