About This Wine

If you’ve ever been to New Zealand, you may have seen them.

These native creatures live in the cool, shallow waters, and have long been revered for their brilliant iridescent shells, considered to have the widest color spectrum of any abalone in the world. They can produce a stunning pearl, and are known as Paua.

Sea Pearl is named after this New Zealand treasure, and Sea Pearl Pinot Noir is crafted from fruit grown in low-cropping vineyards in the southern Wairau River valleys of Marlborough, within close proximity to the sea. A purist approach to winemaking ensures the vineyards are in perfect condition, letting the fruit express itself with minimal intervention in the winery.

Once fermentation was completed, portions of this wine were aged in French oak and stainless steel tanks. The finished product is bright and medium-bodied, with a round texture on the mid-palate — a true pearl of a wine.

About Pinot Noir

Very sensitive to climate and handling in winery, this fickle grape of Burgundy yields low tannin and acidity, medium colors and lifespan. Classic berry, cherry and currant flavors, silky textures typically balanced with spicy or floral tones.

    As a fan of Pinot Noir this wine left me wondering if it had been picked at mid-day in the hot sun and just had not the opportunity to prove itself.
