Superb Clayvin Duo
This mixed case includes three bottles each of the wines below;
Grand Vin Pinot Noir 'Clayvin Vineyard', Marlborough, New Zealand 2016
2016 was a top vintage for the region and this pinot noir is ageing very well. The nose already offers hints of the secondary, earthy, forest-floor aromas which pinot-lovers relish. The palate initially presents a delicate medley of red berry fruit, progressing to a velvety and smooth herbaceous character. The tannins are exceptionally fine and lead to a very complex and lengthy finish.
Chardonnay 'Clayvin Vineyard', Marlborough, New Zealand 2016
The nose is alluring, with butter cream and honeysuckle aromas that give way to fresh lemon peel and delicate, smoky white peach quite reminiscent of good white Burgundy. The palate has a wonderful, cleansing acidity and exudes an elegance rarely found in Southern Hemisphere climes.
