In the cellar – Little Beauty Pinot Noir
Little Beauty 2010, Pinot Noir,
Marlborough, New Zealand
Little Beauty vineyards are situated next to the Waihopai River and face the famous and picturesque Richmond Range. They are sheltered but have taken advantage of their northwest orientation which ensures excellent ripening conditions.
Jason is the viticulturist and Eveline is the winemaker, who used to be the senior winemaker at Cloudy Bay. This Pinot Noir literally is a little beauty and is what Marlborough does best ? a gloriously perfumed, big fruit bomb of a wine. It is totally seductive and completely irresistible.
