Mountford Estate The Gradient Pinot Noir North Canterbury 18


The Gradient is a commanding Pinot Noir from a commanding vineyard site, where firm tannins express the windy elevation of the limestone laden hillside vineyard. It is the second highest vineyard area at Mountford Estate winery in the Waipara Valley, the heart of North Canterbury's wine scene. 

This is one of the top two single vineyard Pinot Noirs made at Mountford each year and is defined by powerful tannins and earthy flavours which add depth and longevity. A wine for now and later on for those with willpower and cellars. 

Mountford Estate was established in 1991 by Buffy and Michael Eaton who chose the site in Waipara for its elevation and active limestone soils. The wines are made by CP Lin, who has worked in the vineyard and winery since the early days when he became a close friend of the Eatons and a devotee of this great vineyard site and region.
