2008 Isabel Estate Vineyards

Pinot Noir

Marlborough, New Zealand

 

Isabel Estate Vineyards 2008 Pinot NoirIsabel is very much a family affair and they are pioneers of the area, seeing the potential long before those that have followed. Mike Tiller, as an Air New Zealand pilot, had the distinct advantage of having an almost daily aerial view of the beautiful Wairau Valley in Marlborough, and hence the opportunity to identify the optimum sites for vineyard development.

The entire estate is hand-pruned and -picked, which is no longer the norm in the region. Vine density is almost twice the average here, and yields are restricted by pruning to low bud numbers. Sustainable viticultural practices maintain vineyard health and soil nutrition using a combination of mulching and organic fish-based fertilizer. These factors no doubt contribute to the wonderful natural intensity and concentration of flavor that is the distinctive hallmark of the wines, all of which are 100% Estate grown and produced.

The 2008 vintage is a truly magical expression of Pinot Noir. Aromas of cherries, plum and exotic spices waft from the glass. On the palate, the wine delivers intense flavor, yet with appropriate elegance and delicacy. This wine has years ahead of it, but is also drinking beautifully right now.

Marlborough, New Zealand
