Kuki produces wines from the Marlborough region of New Zealand's South Island and demonstrates why wines from this area are so popular. Sunny, dry days and cool nights provide a long growing season which helps give the wines their vibrant flavours.
Aromas of red berry, cherry spice with slight savoury notes. The palate shows bright cherry and brambly berry with softening tannins giving succulent length and suppleness
Partner with roast beef, pink lamb cutlets, medium mature cheeses and venison
The Pinor Noir grapes are picked and cooled overnight in the winery prior to partial de-stemming, before crushing and then the juice moved to temperature controlled tanks for an extended cool ferment on skins. Around 20% of the juice is fermented in used oak, before the finished wine portions are married, racked into a combination of French and American oak casks and aged for around 12 months to give complex smoky/vanilla notes and riper tannins.
