Pinot Noir 2018 - Kelly Washington

Kelly Washington

Pinot Noir 2018


Only the second vintage of this wine and it already feels like a classic.

Although based in Marlborough, Kelly Washington’s Pinot Noir comes the Monte Rosa Vineyard in Gibbston, Centra Otago. Harvesting over a month imparted a deep complexity, while eleven months in French oak has added delicate spices and polished the fruit, resulting in a classic herbal Gibbston Pinot Noir with juicy cherry, raspberry, blackcurrant and violet notes. Consider pairing with hoisin duck bao buns, char siu pork, roasted beetroot, pink lamb, wild mushrooms, mapo tofu or a charcuterie board.

We knew we were going to love this new venture as soon as we found out that the winemaker, Tamra Kelly-Washington, had grown up in Marlborough (during the region’s explosion) and started her career at the incredible Seresin Estate. What a place to cut one’s teeth. Following that she headed to the USA, Australia and Italy to hone her skills, then back to New Zealand, spending ten years at Yealands Estate and eventually returning to Seresin. Now she and her husband, Simon, have launched a new enterprise called Kelly Washington. They work with trusted growers who have old vines and high-altitude vineyards, and, crucially, ones that farm sustainably, organically or biodynamically. Together they create wonderfully balanced wines with a real sense of provenance, sophisticatedly packaged in a way that makes you want to buy them all and line them up in a display.
