Grape variety 100% Pinot Noir Bottled December 2017 Cellaring potential 2022 Winemaker Hätsch Kalberer Wine analysis Alcohol 13.5% Total acidity 4.6g/l pH 3.67 Residual sugar Less than 1g/l
A blend of the four & utilizing all 11 of our Pinot clones, La Strada expresses three sub-regions of Marlborough (the clay soiled Brancott and Waihopai Valleys plus the alluvial gravel and silt of the Wairau Valley). The wine opens with pretty red fruit (kirsch and wild strawberries) and a hint of blueberries before revealing a lovely cooling minerality and gentle spice. The palate shows pristine berry fruit and good weight with balanced tannins and juicy acidity
A bright and pure Pinot with good fruit weight and savoury undertones. Complex and harmonious with a structural complexity, yet offering lovely drink now approachability. (February 2018).
