SILVER MEDAL | NZIWS 2022
A lovely example of plush Martinborough Pinot Noir from this excellent producer. All those dark primary red fruits we expect from good North Island Pinot are there in full effect and the palate brings plenty of weight and texture into play. A lovely vein of creamy acidity keeps things fresh and on point and the finish is long, quite spicy, and very rewarding. Great value here.
The winery writes "Dark and brooding in colour; the oak-spiced nose leads with notes of clove and dried rose petal, giving way to intriguing tar and dried fruit aromas. The palate is fruit-forward with layers of roasted strawberries, black cherry cola, and the fresh acidity of a ripe damson plum. The tannins carve a very fine long line, drawing the palate out and reflecting the elegant vintage afforded by a season of perfect weather."
Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review writes "Medium-bodied wine with plum, dark cherry, violet, cassis, blackberry and spice/anise flavours with a backbone of fine, ripe tannins. Supple, elegant wine with a lingering finish and an appealing core of fruit sweetness."
