FOUR STARS | Bob Campbell.
Hands down one of our all time favourite Pinot's.
Margrain has earned a massive Advintage following by delivering something extra for followers of fine Martinborough wine. Winemaker Strat Canning has an uncanny ability to squeeze something extra out of each vintage and his wines tend to differ stylistically from the more commercial styles his peers produce. This stunning release is no exception.
Raymond Chan writes "Medium-full bodied, the palate possesses mouthfilling and succulent flavours of savoury dark-red berry fruits entwined with dark and dried herbs, a little game and earthy elements. The fruit is enlivened by fresh, bright, lacy acidity and supported by light, grainy, but supple tannin extraction providing a firm line. The wine flows to a fill, lively finish of savoury red fruits, earth and game. This is a mouthfilling Pinot Noir with savoury dark-red berry along with earth and game notes, framed by light, grainy structure and fresh acidity."
