All Hallows Eve Merlot 2009
Hawkes Bay
In few other places are the chapters of each season written as eloquently as they are in New Zealand, as snow heralds winter and stitch birds announce spring. All Hallow's Eve, a traditional celebration bidding farewell to one season and greeting the new, captures this spirit of renewal. Made to a lighter lower alcohol style, All Hallow's Eve has been specially created to welcome your new season.

Parcels of Merlot grown to good vineyards around Hawke's Bay are identified on the basis of vibrant aromatic qualities, distinctive varietal fruit characters and fine balance between tannins, acid and physiological ripeness. All bunches are completely destemmed and vinified on skins for a period of up to eight days. After the completion of malolactic fermentation in tank, the batches are transferred to older oak barrels for a spell of maturation and softening of tannins. Some components remain in tank to maintain freshness. Following maturation, those parcels which can best define a low alcohol style while achieving the completeness of Hawkes Bay Merlot, are assembled into the final wine. Alcohol 8.0%
 
Youthful crimson red colour. Fresh raspberry, black plums and cassis notes complemented by background nutmeg oak. A supple, juicy, medium bodied red with dominant red cherry and raspberry fruit flavours balanced by fine tannins. The persistent varietal fruit characters and background oak make All Hallow's Eve a fully approachable Merlot to enjoy while fresh and young. Drinking beautifully alongside grilled tuna steak or a gourmandise lentil burger.
Amisfield Pinot Noir
Central Otago
Available in cartons of six
Hand picked fruit and a measure of whole bunch clusters, barely crushed and cold soaked for a wild indigenous yeast ferment, gently plunged and delicately pumped over, to extract gross solids while preserving textural integrity, followed by an extended soak up of optimal tannins and ten months maturation in good French oak. Youthful aromatic expressions of sweet red cherries, mulberries and plum, a fully complex and lingering palate, the oak is light and subtle to complement the fine grained tannins, juicy winegum flavours and savoury, morello acidity.

Amisfield RKV Reserve Pinot Noir
Central Otago
Available in cartons of six
A single magnificent parcel of Pinot Noir vines, planted to the gravelly Lochar soils of a rocky knoll on Amisfield Block in Central Otago 1. The parched plantings send their roots deep into the inhospitable terrains, struggling for water and yielding meagre harvests of the most intensely flavoured fruit.

Grapes are all hand picked, some whole bunches are included and a component of the wine begins its ferment amongst the vines. A month of cold macerations and natural indigenous yeast vinification is followed by a gentle press into a selection of seasoned and new French oak barriques for completion of malolactic, a judicious term of age, rack and return, before bottling, unfiltered and unfined.
 
Deep dark beetrot red. Complex bouquets, layers of dark berries and red fruit intertwine with delicate spice. The palate exhibits marvelous power and restraint, a lineal backbone of vibrant acidity in support of a broad mouthfilling, textural canopy of savoury varietal fruits, fine black velvet tannins in support, simply an action packed palate before a lengthy, undulating finish.

Project Crimson were keen to have an association with this special wine to help spread word of their work and vision. A close husbanding of the vines to the most exacting standards ripens the Pinot Noir to perfection. Grapes are all hand picked off vines clone 5, 10/5, Abel young Dijon. Bunches are completely de-stemmed keeping as many of the whole berries intact as possible. Parcels are treated to a term of maceration for up to a week before inoculation by indigenous yeast and malo cultures. The batches are hand plunged throughout a fortnight of vinification and complete malolactic in barrel. The finished wines are matured nine months in a selection of new and prior use French oak barrels.
 
Colour of course is crimson. Dark cherry fruit and earth complexity, crushed rose petal, light cherry, brambly notes and a hint of red licorice conspire to create an enchanting, heady fragrance. More savoury than fruity, a faint hint of clove and fresh cardamom adds intrigue to the nose. Easily the most seductive feature of this release is the wonderfully plush, velvety middle palate, the fine, textural spread of tannins and long, tight, spicy finish.

Pinot Noir is largely sourced from the oldest home blocks, now reaching thirty years of age. Abel, aka the Ata Rangi clone, is predominant, Pomard clone 5 and Dijon clones 114, 115 and 667 play important supporting roles. Most parcels are crushed and treated to several days maceration with a minor component of whole berries intact. In warmer vintages when grape stems and seeds have completely ripened, a component of whole bunches is included to build complexity. All parcels are separately vinified at a peak temperature of 32C for up to three weeks before pressing. Components complete their malolactic ferments in a combination of new and prior use French oak barrels, followed by a year's maturation.
 
Purple colour. Dark brooding plum, cherry stone aromas and exotic spice. A rich, dense palate characterised by firm but supple tannins, a delicious gamey, savoury Martinborough complexity.
