Super premium Pinot from Kevin Judd, ex Cloudy Bay winemaker. His vast experience with pinot really shines through here. It's perfectly balanced and elegant with ripe fruit flavours that are expertly tempered by crisp citrus on the finish. A superb wine.
Bob Campbell MW writes "Delicately scented and quite floral wine with violet/rose petal, cherry, anise/spice, cherry/berry and subtle oak flavours. Aromatic and appealing wine with purity and subtle power. Perfectly formed.”
Cameron Douglas MS writes "There’s no mistaking the varietal charm, core of red berry fruits scents and pinosity. Complex and youthful bouquet. Delicious on the palate with a core of red berry fruit flavours, there’s a savoury seam accentuating some dried herb qualities and sweeter toasty oak spice layers. Complexity layers in through an abundance of polished tannis and youthful acid line, cherry, plum and some ripe cranberry flavours. The acidity pulls everything together adding its own texture and freshness to a very lengthy finish."
The winery writes "A virtual fruit compote loaded with juicy strawberries, blackberries and blackcurrants – gently poached and lightly infused with cloves, Chinese five-spice and stem ginger. An intensely perfumed Marlborough pinot with fruit sweetness, floral highlights and a distinct smoky fragrance. The full-flavoured palate is chock-full of red and black fruit and has
great length, firm but delicate tannins and a delicious spicy finish."
