Sileni Pinot Noir
- Hawkes Bay, New Zealand
- Pinot Noir
From the hastings area of hawkes Bay, this 100% Pinot Noir fruit from a 100ha site. A nose of juicy red fruit character is followed by a delicate, soft Pinot Palate.
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.

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 Boutinot 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. The wines are precise and fruit-driven and as well as Pinot and Syrah the range includes a Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and a sparkling Sauvignon Blanc.
