94 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
Finely crafted, vibrant Hawkes Bay Pinot Noir with flavours in the plum, raspberry, cherry and wood spice spectrum. This is bright and alive wine; ideally enjoyed with food where the fresh acidity will come into play.
The winery writes "A bright vibrant ruby hued wine that offers a lovely varietal lift of big red strawberry, cherry and lilac bouquet with hints of savoury herbs and floral notes. Medium/light bodied palate with a finely balanced delicate structure that slips pleasingly across the palate with soft, silky tannins and generous sweet fruit.
Cam Douglas writes "Pure, ripe, fresh, fruity and floral with pinosity oozing from the glass. Aromas of red berries and fresh plum, roses and raspberry then cherry and wood spices. On the palate - fleshy, fruity, bright, youthful and varietal with flavours that reflect the nose. Firm youthful tannins and bright acid-line add texture, grip and palate appeal. A lovely wine with a very good concentration of fruit flavours, oak and finish."
