Grapes: 100% Pinot Noir
Style: Rich and smooth
Country of Origin: New Zealand, Hawkes Bay
If we had to explain this wine in one line, it would be: A ripe savoury Pinot Noir showing tremendous regional and varietal character.
"The Plateau" Pinot Noir is a very New World style with complex aromas of black cherry along with dark berry and cherry spice flavours backed up with ripe, smooth tannins and a long finish. This is a food-friendly style that will benefit from cellaring for up to 6 years.
The Sileni Vineyards and Winery are based near Hastings, Hawke’s Bay - the oldest wine region in New Zealand - on elevated river terraces, in the cooler, inland, Mangatahi sub-region. It has a climate similar to that of some of the great wine regions of the world. The wine was matured for nine months in French Oak before blending and bottling.
Excellent with mushroom risotto, pink duck, lamb or pasta with truffle and parmesan. From robust salmon dishes through to the Christmas goose, this is a verstaile match for many rich foods.
