The previous vintages have always cleaned up at the award rounds and cement this classic wine's reputation as one of Central's most consistently awarded Pinot Noirs. The 2022 is yet another showstopper - loaded with dark berry fruits, classic Central Otago savoury characters and pillow soft tannins. Gorgeous wine.
The palate exhibits juicy red fruits, while on the palate toasty oak and spice characters give complexity and texture. Soft, light tannins compliment the classic Central Otago savoury characteristics, leading to a lengthy, full finish. A delightful expression of Central Otago Pinot Noir from this highly respected producer.
Vegetarian and Vegan friendly.
The winery writes "Nose of ripe raspberries, blackcurrant and struck flint. The pallet derives of black plum and ripened black cherry with notes of wet leaves, charred wood and smoky mushroom. Chalky tannin accompanied by lively minerality lengthens the wines savoury characteristics throughout the finish."
