Tree House Estate is located in the heart of Martinborough, a region which has received international acclaim for producing outstanding Pinot Noir. Spring winds keep our yield low, while hot summers, long dry autumns and cool nights provide ideal ripening conditions for our vintages.
Adhering to the adage that great wine is produced in the vineyard, virtually all work at Tree House Estate is done by hand. Pruning, bud rubbing, leaf plucking, tucking and most importantly harvesting is all done manually to ensure that the fruit which goes into our wine is of the best possible quality.
Our wine is made by local winemaker Paul Mason, while vineyard operations are overseen by viticulturist Glenys Hansen.
Pinot Noir 2009
The aroma is made up of complex ripe cherry and plums, with a warm, slightly spicy note adding secondary character to a youthful nose. It has a great balance of cooked fruit and oak vanillin’s. The flavours are fine and warming. The wine would be best served with beef, lamb or venison then progressing to pork and other game dishes as the wine ages. Two to five years cool cellaring will make this a complex and elegant wine.
Cellaring Potential: 5-7 years
