Out of 700kgs of fruit comes the Nikau pinot noir 2019. Wild ferments in stainless steel and no maceration, no plunging, no movement.
This is by far the most “less is more” wine I have ever made, and has only been made possible by being able to grow fruit of the highest quality and health.
It is a profound and captivating wine that is a very transparent and honest view of time and of place. It has immense energy, purity and vitality that I think can only happen when everything that contributes to a wine aligns in synchronicity and balance. This is the best example of that that I have put to bottle so far. - Dane Johns, Nikau
