The fruit for this Still Life Wine was sourced from the Churton and Wrekin Vineyards in Marlborough - BioGro certified organic #5121 and 5732 respectively.
100% Pinot Noir, hand harvested then wild fermented in stainless steel with the majority being whole berry and destemmed fruit (with just 25-30% whole bunches). Once pressed the wine was left to mature in aged French oak barriques until blended. It has been kegged unfiltered, unfined, unadjusted and without any sulphites added at all - a true natural wine. 13.1% alc/vol.
Stylistically this is a serious Pinot Noir; dense, savoury, brambly and with good structure too. It's refined, structured and as you will have come to expect of Still Life Wines, it's a delicious, well-made, and suitable for any audience.
We are now offering our packaging-free natural wines for online delivery.
We work closely with wineries up and down the country to bring you organic, natural wines straight from the winery to our store, and offer them to you on tap, packaging free.
We fill to order, and fill into sturdy, heavy-duty 750ml swing top bottles that you can later reuse. The wines are held under nitrogen and the bottles are pre-gassed before filling to prevent oxidation. We suggest opening the wine within 2-3 weeks of purchasing it and consuming the wine within 1-2 days of opening.
Once you've finished with the bottle pop back to either one of our stores (442 K' Road, Auckland or 177 Cuba Street, Wellington) for a refill, or use the bottles for other drinks, ferments, sauces, etc!
