At the Black Cottage we are dedicated to producing a range of wines full of gusto'. Combining select parcels of fruit with modern and alternative winemaking techniques, we strive to create very special wines which are approachable and delicious.
The Black Cottage, situated in the heart of the Wairau Valley, is where winemaker David Clouston lives and spends quality time with friends and family. It is also the quiet space in which he contemplates and constructs the very special wines on which he has built a fine reputation.
This Pinot Noir comes from a single vineyard site located in the center of the Wairau Valley. The wine is also a single clone, clone 114, from 12 year old vines that are unirrigated. This low cropping site intensifies the cherry cola fruit on the nose and palate.
A great summer wine that is mouthwateringly fresh!
Undeniably Marlborough Pinot Noir.
