Pinot Noir - Red New Zealand Wine
The King's Wrath Pinot Noir 750ml
Delicious aromas of loganberry, damson plum with hints of lanolin supported by toasty oak. The palate is rich and mouth filling due to a complex tannin structure with blackberry and cassis flavours intertwined with an opulent smokiness. Brent Marris Winemaker/Proprietor

History: Brent Marris, Marlborough born and raised, spent years as a youngster exploring the landscape of his home region. He put that exploration to good use when, in 2003, he started his search for a vineyard property. The site he chose was 268ha of vineyards on the banks of the Waihopai River, on the southern side of the Wairau Valley. From here, Brent started Marisco Vineyards and achieved international success with his wines, most notably with his flagship brand “The Ned”.
Regional Information: New Zealand's flagship wine region which, in combination with Sauvignon Blanc, put the country on the international wine stage. Much more than just Sauvignon though, Marlborough offers increasing depth in both varieties and terroir.
Alcohol By Volume: 13.5
Tasting Notes: A seamless amalgam of red & dark berries and toasted French oak reveal themselves before the combination of oak, fruit and stem tannin reasserts itself, tightening and focusing the palate for a long, spicy finish.
