Tasting Notes

Bob Campbell MW writes "Flagship wine from the Home Block, first planted in 1999. It’s a seductive pinot noir with a core of sweet, ripe plum and cherry flavours together with floral and spice noted. It’s deliciously approachable now but with cellaring potential." 

Steve Bennett MW, NZ Wine Rater writes "Complex, powerful and expansive on the nose with seductive, brooding aromas of black cherry and damson plum, dark chocolate, tar, fire embers and burnt caramel oak. This is a serious, concentrated wine with unctuous fruit, layers of rich tannins and incredible length. It needs more bottle age but with airtime, it is simply wonderful."

The winery writes "Inspired by wines from Burgundy, this vineyard gives a unique opportunity for the Abel clone to express its self in a distinctive manner. A unique wine that always exhibits perfume, power, and elegance, all rolled into one exquisite package. An ideal accompaniment to any gamey red meat, duck, or New Zealand lamb."
