91 POINTS | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Winemaker Ant Mackenzie sits at the top table of Hawkes Bay winemakers and his partnership with well-known distributor Jeannine McCallum has seen the birth of the exciting Cognoscente range. We love everything about these wines. We love the super cool retro labels. We love the signature Ant Mackenzie generous winemaking. And we love the obvious value for money that this new range offers discerning wine buyers.
This is a classic representation of Martinborough Pinot. The hallmark flavours of cherry and dark fruit are there in full force and finely structured tannins round this wine out nicely. Full-bodied and generous.
Medium red in colour with hints of purple and blue. Cherry and strawberry aromas with nuances of toast/ mocha coffee. Finely structured fruit and oak tannins. Soft, full-bodied and long lasting.
Sam Kim writes "Attractively fruited and beautifully lifted, showing dark cherry, dried herb, game and dark mushroom aromas on the nose, leading to a finely textured palate displaying fleshy texture and polished tannins. Elegant and persistent."
