The Elder is a boutique wine growing venture, owned by the four friends Mike and Margaret Hanson, and Nigel and Bridgit Elder. The base of the operation is the 12 hectare property on the terraces at the southern end of Te Muna Valley, in Martinborough, with over 6000 vines and 1100 olive trees. The vineyard is planted to 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Gris, and has proven to be an excellent source of fruit. Deep, ruby in colour, The Elder Pinot Noir 2011 is extraordinarily perfumed, with aromas of strawberries and raspberries and with a degree of a savoury bite. The fruit concentration on the palate is superb and the tannins are firm, with a long and elegant finish. A wine to enjoy with grilled quail, seared tuna or a cooked beetroot dish.
