Tinpot Hut's owner and winemaker Fiona Turner began developing her Blind River "Home Block" vineyard in Marlborough's Awatere Valley with husband Hamish in 2005. This wine was sourced from three well-tended, low yielding vineyards in the Blind River and each vineyard was kept separate in small open top fermenters. After fermentation several batches were put to French oak barrels. The remaining batches were aged in stainless steel tanks to preserve the delicate fruit characters. Each batch went through malolactic fermentation and was aged on lees before being blended. Intense aromas of black cherry, blackberry and plum mingle with a hint of redcurrant. Savory mushroom and toasty oak characters complete the attractive nose. Classic black cherry notes dominate the palate and are supported by hints of bramble, reflecting the aromatics. Structurally the tannins are soft and silky. Well balanced acidity ensures good length and weight. Food pairing: New Zealand green shell mussels, king salmon, lamb shoulder or a charcuterie platter.
