This is serious Pinot Noir that is all about fun with no pretence! A deliciously concentrated wine with an abundance of bright red fruit and a wonderful creamy texture. The cherry and raspberry vein is complemented by a hint of umami! Light on tannin and big on concentration, this is a brilliant wine for pairing with platters, fish and lighter meats. A special no-frills, full-thrills wine from an excellent vintage, that will age gracefully for 7+ years.
Wine making notes
We’re proud to present our second edition of Stoaker Edition Pinot Noir. The Pinot Noir grapes (Clones 943, 5 and 777) that created this beautiful wine came from established vineyards in Pisa (92%) and Alexandra (8%). The fruit was hand-harvested at optimal ripeness with harvest dates ranging from late March to early April 2022. Several different ferments went into the blend ranging from 0-25% whole bunches per fermenter with the resulting blend having around 10% whole clusters, which aids the tannin structure and aromatics of the wine. The total time on skins ranges from 20-28 days. The wine was aged in stainless steel tanks (60%) and fine-grain aged French oak barrels (40%) for approximately 10 months. Our winemaker, Jen Parr, selected exceptional fruit from 2 vineyards in Central Otago to create a fresh and elegant wine that is exciting and highly drinkable.
This vegan wine is unfined and unfiltered.
