    Aromas of white and black pepper, violets and plum and a subtle chocolate and leather spiciness. This wine is medium bodied and complex. Produced in the Northern Rhône style, with plum, pepper and cinnamon characters with a slight bacon note on the finish. A firm acid backbone with silky tannins harmonises the fruit and culminates in a warm, ripe finish.

    Tinpot Hut wines are made primarily from fruit grown on winemaker Fiona Turner’s vineyard in Blind River. Fiona, who has worked with Matt Thomson for a number of years, supplements her own grapes with fruit from other growers in Marlborough and Hawkes Bay. The tinpot hut that gave its name to Fiona’s wines is an old mustering hut in the remote hills between the Wairau and Awatere Valleys. The huts were used as a base for musterers as they rounded up the sheep that had been in the hills from spring to autumn. The name links Marlborough’s past as a sheep farming centre with its current state as one of the world’s most dynamic wine regions.
