Located at an altitude of 300m, the vineyard is on a terrace on the slopes of the Pisa Range overlooking Lake Dunstan, where long sunshine hours enable slow fruit ripening and the devel-opment of complex avours. The wines are not claried or ltered. In 2015, 40% of fruit was whole bunch fermented, then aged in oak for 20 months, producing a complex wine showing ripe tannins, fresh acid and tight structure. The 2016 has 16% whole bunch fermentation, followed by 16 months barrel aging. It shows red fruit aromas with succulent notes and supple texture. The natural acidity and pure, clear fruit avours are pleasant and lingering.Sato Pinot NoirPisa Terrace 2015(Screw cap)RRP ￥7,680Origin: Central Otago, New ZealandThe natural avours of Pisa Terrace CODE10836Sato Pinot NoirPisa Terrace 2016(Screw cap)RRP ￥7,500CODE11411New friendly price!RRP￥2,850Varietals: Sauvignon Blanc 93%, Semillon 7%Alc. 13.4%Australia’s leading premium producer, Leeuwin Estate, has provided an outstanding price break on this new vintage.
