Description

Notes – Sitting just north of the City of Christchurch in the rich tapestry of New Zealand’s Canterbury Plains is St Helena Wine Estate. Founded in 1978 by the Mundy family, the vineyard takes maximum advantage of the regions long, warm summers and dry autumns. An ideal climate for producing some of the best premium grapes the Southern Hemisphere has to offer. The result is a stunning selection of wines produced from the winery’s 20 hectare estate. In fact, St Helena is acknowledged as the pioneer in establishing premium Pinot Noir for New Zealand. Owners Robin and Bernice Mundy and award winning winemaker Alan McCorkindale are passionate in their dedication to producing exceptional fruit and wines from the vineyard and the continuing development of Canterbury as one of New Zealand’s finest wine producing regions. This wine undergoes barrel fermentation, malolactic fermentation, lees aging wth regular stirring and eight months barrel maturation. This results in an intense nose of butterscotch caramel, tropical fruit and almonds. The palate is soft and creamy with a long finish and displays wonderful complexity and a fine balance between fruit and oak characters. Ideal with fish, white meat and pasta, cheese and bread.
