The Clayvin Vineyard is located on the north facing slopes of the Brancott Valley, Marlborough NZ. Clayvin Vineyard takes its unique name from the clay based soil profile that lies beneath the vineyard. The complex clay profile varies across the vineyard, allowing a number of different varieties to be grown, including Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. This vineyard consistently produces grapes of outstanding quality.
From Marlborough’s iconic hillside vineyard this Pinot is rich and generous with pin point precision. Its penetrating deep nose opens with concentrated dark fruit (blackberries, black cherries) and subtle fragrant spice. The aromas then unravel into black rose petal florals, integrated oak and focusing minerality. The palate is full with bold ripe tannins, firm structure and balanced acidity. A substantial wine that will reveal its inherent elegance with time.
