Ara Select Blocks Pinot Noir 2012
This Pinot Noir has aromas and flavours of cherries, strawberries, cocoa, and earthy note of forest floor. It is a rich, complex and medium-bodied wine with a soft and elegant lingering finish.
About the winemakerAra wines are produced from grapes grown on one single-vineyard estate in Marlborough’s Wairau Valley, the only wine producer of significant size to do so in the region. Adopting a fully sustainable approach to both growing and winemaking, Ara belongs to Sustainable Winegrowing NZ and is passionate about preserving the surrounding environment. In 2004 they joined the Department of Conservation’s falcon recovery programme by introducing a breeding pair of rare native falcons to a secluded corner of the vineyard. Over the last few years, members of the Ara team have planted cuttings of native plants around the vineyard blocks, which aside from their beauty, have lured native birds such as the ‘tui’ and ‘wax-eye’ back to Marlborough.
