Leftfield Pinot Noir was selected from vineyards spanning the different sub-regions of Marlborough. The grapes for this wine were picked in the cool of morning to retain freshness. The berries were left whole in tank for fermentation in order to create a wine that celebrates the lighter red berry and floral attributes of the Pinot Noir grape.
The young wine was drained and pressed off skins to barrel and tank for maturation. After 10 months, the wine parcels were blended and bottled.
Some of the Leftfield Pinot Noir berries were too pretty to crush, so they were saved and fermented whole. This Leftfield way of winemaking brings sweet, juicy flavours of strawberry bubblegum and cherry to a rather delicious party.
