FIVE STARS 96/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "A stunning expression..."
95 POINTS | Bob Campbell MW
Vinted from fruit from a single 3 hectare block in Bannockburn, this is premium Pinot Noir with the five star reviews to back it up. Winemaker Steve Davies (formerly at Akarua and Carrick) focuses on organic production and farming to improve soil health and the resulting wine is concentrated and mouthfilling with flavours in the dark berry spectrum. While drinking beautifully now, the real magic here will unfold over the next 4 - 6 years and patience will certainly be rewarded.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "A stunning expression of the variety with dark cherry, toasted spice, thyme, cured meat and dark mushroom aromas, it's concentrated and richly textured in the mouth offering terrific fruit power combined with seductive savoury nuances. Impressively weighted and flowing, backed by fine grainy tannins, finishing persistent and structured."
