Pathway Pinot Noir

The higher altitude of Ara’s vineyard gives our pinot noir a subtle advantage. It’s refined, but also nicely exuberant. We like the description ‘an iron fist in a velvet glove’ for pinot noir.

Tasting Notes

Pathway Pinot Noir is a classic expression of Marlborough; a supple Pinot Noir with sweet berry fruit aromas and light spice notes wrapped up with a lingering savoury finish.

"Pure, red fruit, smoky, medium body, very fine grained texture.  Dry, light body, redcurrant jelly."
