Sileni Exceptional Vintage Pinot Noir cherishes a distinguished history, deeply rooted in the commitment to exceptional wine production of Sileni Estates. Established in 1997 in Hawke’s Bay, New Zealand’s oldest wine region, Sileni Estates cultivates a diverse range of grape varietals across carefully selected vineyards. The Exceptional Vintage Pinot Noir is sourced solely from the Mangatahi sub-region. Aptly named, this unique wine is only produced in extraordinary years, underscoring the winemaker’s dedication to showcase the pinnacle of the production year. This delicate yet intensive attention to detail, combined with the unique, elevated terroirs of Mangatahi, gives birth to this profoundly enticing Pinot Noir.
