Hunter's Pinot Noir is a barrel-aged red wine made by Hunter's winery in Marlborough New Zealand (South Island) with the Pinot Noir variety.
Hunter's is a winery founded by Irishman Ernie Hunter in Marlborough in 1979. A pioneering project in the area, this winery has become one of the best known in the country. After the founder's death, his wife Jane, now known as the “First Lady of New Zealand Wine” took the reins, and advised by a great technical team, she continues to produce high quality wines with a classic style year after year.
Hunter's Pinot Noir comes from Marlborough. This region of New Zealand’s South Island enjoys mild temperatures throughout the year. They use traditional agriculture with sustainable certification and the harvest is carried out manually when the grapes reach optimum ripeness.
In the winery, Hunter's Pinot Noir ferments with the crushed whole grapes on top at a low temperature for 5 days. The grapes are then pressed and the must is transferred to French oak barrels, 30% of which are new, for 10 months. Finally the wine is refined, filtered and bottled.
Straight from the other side of the world, Hunter's Pinot Noir is an example of the delicious wines made on New Zealand’s South Island. A fruity, fresh and persistent Pinot Noir.
