From 27 hectares of Dijon clone-planted Pinot Noir, this is a really classy wine with black cherries, plum and black olive, a toasty edge and a silky structure.

Hatters Hill Pinot Noir was harvested from the Delta Vineyard, located in Marlborough’s Southern Valleys. The vineyard comprises of 27 hectares of Pinot Noir from selected Dijon clones planted in 2002. The vineyard’s rich clay soil and elevation combined with Marlborough’s warm days and cool nights, make this site ideal for producing top quality Pinot Noir.

Delta’s winemaker, Heather Stewart, selected the finest clone 115 and 777 Pinot Noir grapes from the Delta vineyard. The grapes were carefully picked and transported to the winery where they were kept in a cold soak for four days to extract maximum colour, flavour and tannin form the grapes. Fermented with a carefully selected yeast strain, the grapes were hand plunged up to eight times daily during the height of fermentation. 10% whole bunches were added to enhance the complexity of the wine. After fermentation, the wine was transferred into French oak barriques, 30% brand new, and left to mature for ten months. Only the finest barrels were selected and lightly fined before bottling.
