Roll over: A florally expressive Pinot noir, with acidity and low alcohol

The intention with the nouveau is to produce a florally expressive Pinot noir, with acidity and low alcohol. To do this they undertake a very rigorous viticultural regime, substantial shoot positioning, bunch thinning and green thinning, shoulder removal.  The fruit is protected from excessive sunlight to ensure crisp acidity and lighter tannins. Meticulous hand picking and berry selection occurs during harvest. Where possible, all vineyard work is undertaken by dedicated family members, friends and community. Hand harvest and hand sorting in the vineyard took place on the 18th of March.

As part of the original 1880’s subdivision of Martinborough, the Princess Street vineyard is formed by the early settler’s concept of a small farmlet. Originally divided into four 1-acre sections and two 4-acre lots, the property merged into one with the planting of the original vines 100-years later by Jack McCreanor, in 1986. Over the years, the vineyard has been influenced and shaped by some of the giants of the Wairarapa wine fraternity, to form the On Giants’ Shoulders vineyard that we know today.
