95 POINTS 'Outstanding' | Cameron Douglas MS
FIVE STARS 94/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
A stunning Marlborough Pinot Noir that is dangerously good. Generous on the nose showing vibrant aromas following through on the palate. Dark cherry and raspberry characters with a dry finish and a nice touch of bitter dark chocolate. Absolutely gorgeous - crowd pleaser.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "A splendid rendition of the variety, showing sweet cherry, hazelnut, olive, clove and rich floral aromas, followed by a silky-smooth palate offering excellent fruit purity with stylish complexity, finishing wonderfully long and velvety."
Cameron Douglas writes "An excellent bouquet filled with scents of ripe dark cherry and black currant, the fruits are laced with a savoury natural spice and dried herb quality from soil and barrel work. Complex and youthful bouquet overall. Delicious on the palate with a core of dark berries and currants, dried herb and wood smoke with a clove quality. Taut and youthful, salivating with a fresh nut and flinty quality. An abundance of fine through chalky tannins and medium+ acid line. Very lengthy finish, a wine of quality, panache and style."
