New Zealand is known for producing Pinot Noirs that are structured and elegant, possessing vibrant power and fruit-forward intensity. Greenhough’s organic 2017 Hope Vineyard Pinot Noir delivers these prized properties and more. This velvety Pinot Noir is brimming with complex flavors - ripe red cherry, anise, and violet are held in check by spicy oak nuances and a saline minerality.
There is a reciprocation between juicy acidity and fine-grained tannins, underscored by that iconic Pinot Noir silky fruit sweetness and oaky umami. This is a cohesive, high-energy wine that is unfined and unfiltered, made from the finest organic grapes. Greenhough’s flagship range of Hope Vineyard wines is made from single-vineyard selections, hand-harvested and wild fermented in small batches. Their expressive 2017 Pinot Noir is made with 70% destemmed fruit and 30% whole bunch to add some floral elevation and firmness to the structure. It is elegant and smooth, delicious now or aged in the bottle.
100% Pinot Noir. Contains Sulfites.
Frequently Asked Questions
What should I serve the 2017 Greenhough Hope Vineyard Pinot Noir with?
This earthy Pinot Noir makes a lively accompaniment to beets, fennel, eggplant, mushrooms, and root vegetables. Why not serve it with a root veg galette, topped with vegan feta crumbles and fresh parsley, and a creamy fennel gratin? Or, we love it with a plant-based eggplant parmigiana, with crusty bread and a tangy dressed salad. Pinot Noir is a fantastic choice for vegan pairings as it is not so rich as to overwhelm more delicate, plant-based flavors.
