2010 Churton, Pinot Noir, Marlborough
100% Pinot Noir
Churton is the brainchild of Sam and Mandy Weaver, English expatriates who have devoted themselves to producing small quantities of outstanding Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot noir. These wines have elegance and texture, complexity and layers of flavour, subtlety and length. They are the result of an Old-World approach to viticulture, with close planting and low cropping vines and all work done by hand including picking at harvest. Biodynamic principles are used in vineyard operations.
"This Pinot noir has expressive, warm red plum and red cherry compote notes with hints of cloves, cinnamon, lilacs and lavender. Medium-bodied with a good amount of red berry and spice flavours, it has medium levels of grainy tannins, with just enough balanced acid and a long finish." (91 pts. Robertparker.com)
