Lay of the Land – Pinot Noir

LAY of the LAND

Pinot Noir
2014

Marlborough 
New Zealand

Lay of the Land wines have been a long time coming. After 10 years as a winemaker with a leading Marlborough winery, the beautiful Angels are wonderfully dedicated and their farming friends have combined with me to bring this long dreamt of project to your wine glasses. It is still hard to believe that it is happening, thanks to all the Angels!

Marlborough’s emerging jewel is definitely Pinot Noir. Marlborough’s river plains and valleys provide a rich tapestry of soil types from the alluvial and free draining to the lay rich and vigorous. Our aim with Marlborough Pinot Noir is to transmit both regional and seasonal character through the elusive, yet beguiling grape.

Very light and bright, with strong cherry notes. Low tannins and a little tang. Easy drinking wine.
