2019 Nikau Farm Pinot Noir
"The intention is to craft wines that are first and foremost a brutally honest expression of land, place, farming and time whilst aiming to conserve and show the energy that abounds in all of these elements." - Dane Johns

Coming from the 27 year-old, 0.5ha, own-rooted Nikau vineyard, this estate site is meticulously managed by Dane & his family. With only 700kg of fruit harvested, this was de-stemmed, fermented using indigenous yeasts, and matured in stainless steel for ten months prior to bottling.
This is an incredibly thought-provoking wine, and an exemplar of all the hard work that Dane & his family have put into this site. Aromatics of plum, soil, and dark berries lead into a rocky, mineral palate with a saline tang, dark cherry, and firm tannins.
We’re very excited to be able to get our hands on this special release, and we think you’re going to love it.
Stock is available for pre-order below and will be shipped on Monday 21st of September 2020.
