4 STARS & BEST BUY - CUISINE MAGAZINE.
Madam Sass lived her life with daring indulgence. She is our homage to heroines from Central Otago’s gold rush era; when gutsy women held little regard for the establishment and relished taking risks.
Sourced from vineyards in Bendigo, Central Otago, this enticing Pinot Noir is full of attitude, style and extravagance. Decadent blackberry and sweet dark cherry aromas are delivered with opulence, chalky tannins and complex oak spice.
The current vineyard sites were formed from ancient glaciers grinding schist rocks to smaller gravels. The soil is rich in minerals, free draining and perfect for growing exceptional Pinot Noir. The wine was aged, for 8 long months, in some French Oak barrels, adding a robust tannin backbone to contrast those rich, berry fruit flavours. This Pinot Noir is sophisticated and has depth & concentration, much like Madam Sass herself.
