Blank Canvas Settlement Pinot Noir 2019

Blank Canvas

The Settlement Pinot Noir comes from a certified organic vineyard in the Omaka Valley subregion of Marlborough. Fermented with native yeasts and 50% whole-clusters and aged in 35% new oak for 12 months. This is a serious Pinot Noir with lovely aromatics of ripe black cherry, raspberry, and baking spices. Fine tannins, intense and saturating fruit, and excellent persistence. This can age, but is drinking wonderfully now.

17.5+ pts “Mid cherry red. A notably savoury aroma though no lack of dark and dark-red fruits lifted by a hint of perfumed sweetness, almost a floral note, highlighted by the whole-bunch component, which adds a herbal but not unripe quality which shows more on the day after opening. On the palate, this is a beauty, firmly structured but with extreme tannic finesse. That savoury character on the palate too, with just a hint of stems adding to the well-balanced freshness. Plenty of Southern Valleys character and power here, in an elegant style, very slightly chewy at this young stage but even so it’s hard to resist drinking it now even though it should age well. Just goes to show that Marlborough doesn’t have to make tutti-frutti Pinot.” – Julia Harding MW, jancisrobinson.com (Jan 2022)

Jason is insanely talented at what he does. His extensive travel throughout Europe and beyond to find the best, organic and often small wine producers mean you get access to bottles which you would never otherwise have discovered. He isn’t just skilled at picking out outstanding wine. He is passionate about listening to people and what they like and then really trying to find something he thinks matches their taste (and budget.) That is what sets him apart. Getting a delivery from Vinified is a real treat.
