Sileni Cellar Selection Pinot Noir, Hawke’s Bay (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
Sileni Estates was born from a long-standing interest in wine by Graeme Avery. In late 1997, along with financial director Chris Cowper and winemaker Grant Edmonds, he established Sileni as an export-oriented producer, committed to crafting world-class fine wines. The winery is named after the Sileni who featured in Roman mythology alongside Bacchus, the God of Wine. They celebrated good wine, good food and good company; to us here at Kwoff, the holy trinity. The vineyards and winery are based near Hastings, Hawke’s Bay - the oldest wine region in New Zealand - on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand.
Grown in cooler Hawke's Bay sub regions, on a variety of soil types. Gravels provide structure, length and perfumed aromatics, while the clay soils provide roundness, sweet fruit and savoury characters. Only a small portion of oak was used to highlight aromatics and provide extra richness to the palate.
Sileni Cellar Selection Pinot Noir, Hawke’s Bay wine on the nose has an enticing note of freshly baked Bakewell tart, all homemade jam and almonds. In the mouth, it's fresh and bright with a fine almond skin appeal. The wine remains fresh throughout with a lovely defining acidity which makes this a great food match for crispy duck pancakes, grilled quail, seared salmon or tuna, charcuterie, ham and other cold meats.
