2019 Te Kano Blanc de Noir
$27 NZD inc. GST
A fresh and mineral wine made entirely from Pinot Noir. Minimal skin contact ensures the very palest blush while expressing flavours of stone fruit, peach, white flowers and spice.More
Spring and Summer were cooler and wetter than usual, with the long ripening period allowing flavours to build in intensity while retaining freshness and vibrancy.
The Eliza vineyard forms the backbone of this unique wine, with bright fresh acids and delicate flavours and aromas. The heavy clay and alluvial gravels of this block lend themselves to bigger bunches and berries, yielding juice with just the faintest touch of pink, and ultimately a brilliant, pale wine with just a hint of blush. Fruit from our Jerome vineyard lends fruit intensity and structure.
100% Pinot Noir, clones Abel, 115 and 5.
Hand picked grapes were delicately whole bunch pressed using a long and gentle pressure to ensure the minimum of colour was extracted from the skins. A very cool and long fermentation in stainless steel was used to preserve the delicate aromatics and elegant structure typical of this wine, while a period of time on light lees built mid palate texture and depth.
