Well balanced and elegant, the 2020 Orchard Lane Pinot
Noir is a delicate combination of red berry, plum and spice
aromas with lightly balanced supple tannins.
The Orchard Lane winery lies down a long quiet lane in the heart of the
Marlborough wine growing region.
In an area once surrounded by apple orchards only one gnarled row remains,
providing fresh apples to our winemakers over harvest.
Perfectly ripe fruit from two special vineyards(one situated on
a hillside in the southern valleys, the other located on a rare
clay band in the Wairau valley) was hand harvested and
fermented in small open top fermenters. Hand plunged 3 x
per day for 10 days then drained and pressed to quality French
oak barrels for maturation and 100% malolactic ferment.
