The Matua Pinot Noir has blackberry notes and some lovely sweet smoky oak. Mouth feel is initially soft and luscious, held up nicely by the supply tannins for a savoury, lingering finish.
|Matua Valley was founded in a tin shed in 1974 by two brothers, Bill and Ross Spence. The brothers wanted to make wine in New Zealand that was as good as any in the world.
As a small, family-run winery in West Auckland, Matua Valley quickly gained a reputation for innovation and producing award-winning New Zealand wines.
