Zotovich SR/246 Pinot Noir

The Pinot smells delicately of red fruits. It tastes like cranberries, juicy red plums and some blood orange, while it remains fresh, with a nice, juicy structuring acidity and fine tannins that are soft enough to call the wine silky.



Anthony William À-DÛB Pinot Noir

Located in Northern Santa Barbara County is the cool-climate, Santa Maria Valley AVA. One of four elite districts in the county, its close proximity to the ocean, diverse soils and a dynamic diurnal temperature swing make this region one of California's most lauded sources for Burgundian varietals. The western-most vineyard in the region, located just 10 miles from the Pacific Ocean.

Our Santa Maria Valley Vineyards are planted to the grapes that best maximize its coastal influence. We utilize several clones of each varietal we plant, tailored to the capabilities of specific vineyard blocks.

A heavy marine layer settles on the vineyards in the mornings and evenings, with midday to afternoon typically showing clear skies and temperatures in the high- 80's. This rare balance of fog and sun, with swings of 40 degrees Fahrenheit between day and night, make the region one of few places in the world that maximizes the potential of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

Predominantly recessed sea bed, loamy soils, mixed with shaly, sandy and clay profiles are distributed across southfacing plantings that spread over steep hillsides and valley floor blocks.

Each block is trellised according to its needs and pruning and thinning is accomplished mainly by hand. As with all of our farming, sustainability is key and we seek to limit our influence on the land so it will perform to its natural potential


Decibel Pinot Noir

Decibel Wines are the vision of Winemaker Daniel Brennan and produced with some of New Zealand's best Wine Growers. 

Tasting Notes : 

Ruby jewelled colour with aromas of raspberry, spice, dark toast and forest floor. The mouthfeel is bright and perky on entry with soft, savoury flavours and supple acidity. The structure is built on fine grain and chalky tannins with a lingering juicy finish. 

The Vineyard : 

This family vineyard of 2 hectares was planted in 1990 with 100% Pinot Noir of Dijon clones, 10/5 and some close planted Abel clone on low fruiting wires. The vineyard is situated on New York Street a 10 minute walk from the town centre but set on the legendary ancient river terraces of Martinborough. The soils are predominantly free draining river gravels with varying depths of wind blown silts and a small amount of clay towards the eastern boundary. Low cropping vines resulted in intense fruit in the fantastic 2013 vintage in New Zealand.

Winemaking : 

The fruit was hand picked and carefully attended to over a sorting table. 10% whole bunches with stems were used in the fermenter. A 5 day cold soak was followed by the fermenter being warmed to encourage the wild ferment. Throughout the fermentation the vat was hand plunged to allow for gentle extraction. After fermentation the must was macerated for an additional 3 days before being drained and pressed to 30% one year old oak barriques with the balance to three year old barriques allowing the elegance of the wine to be featured. After 10 months in barrel the wine was racked to tank to settled and then unfiltered to bottle.
