Crafted from a collation of Marlborough and Nelson River fruit, a full bodied Pinot Noir offering layers of ripe berry characters, reflecting the unique microclimes of exceptional vineyards. The secret to Latitude 41 lies within the extended New Zealand growing seasons and high solar intensity. Low yields and slow ripening conditions yield harvests of richly flavoured Pinot Noir, parcels exhibiting velvety, showroom tannins and vibrant dark cherry flavours. Exquisite length and crisp fruit character, Latitude 41 has the basics of balance, flavour and finesse, completely right.
The viticultural team at Spencer Hill move amongst their vines throughout the growing season, devoted to their precious plantings, passionate about the sanctity of the land on which they work. Every year at vintage time, the different blocks of vine are routinely picked at different stages of ripeness, to effect layers of flavoursomeness and complexity. Clones 667 and 5, 777 and 115, Marifeld and Abel, grapes are destemmed, crushed and fermented into one tonnes vessels. Native, wild yeasts are used for fermentation at temperatures approaching 30C. After pressing the wines are treated to maturation on French oak for nine months. All wines are sterile filtered to assure long term satisfaction. Alcohol 13.0%
TASTING NOTES
Dark cherry red. A well measured bouquet of violets and strawberry, charry earthy elements, herbacousness and violin notes of cedar oak. A front palate of vibrant red jelly fruit, sweet compotes of rhubarb, currants and applejack, bright black cherries, vanilla and spice notes in support. Mouth filling structure, the richness of game meats, framed by a supple veneer of toasty vanilla oak.

Philip Jones and Sheryl Jones established the winery in 1990. Philip is a graduate of the University of California with degrees in Viticulture and Integrated Pest Management. He worked for eighteen years as a consultant to the Agricultural industry and during this period trained as a Winemaker at California State University. His experience as both a Winemaker and Viticulturalist contribute greatly to the winery direction and success. After investigating viticultural areas throughout New Zealand it was decided to establish vineyards and a winery in the Upper Moutere hills close to Nelson. The first wines were produced in 1994 under the Tasman Bay label and were quickly recognized as some of New Zealand best wines. Spencer Hill»
