Soft and charming, our St Jacques Pinot Noir 2016 impresses with lifted aromas of wild black cherries and spice, a silken texture and a savoury, earthy finish.

Our St Jacques Wines
Named after Coquille St Jacques - French for the beautiful scallop shell, our St Jacques wines are inspired by Nelson’s carefree lifestyle in the sun.

Weather Conditions: Spring and early summer were hot and extremely dry. Much needed rain came in December and January promoting a vibrant and
healthy canopy.

After a warm summer we received more rain just a few days before harvest. Luckily the fine weather returned – and with the help of our amazing picking team we managed to bring our crop in safely and in good condition.
