FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
92 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
Iconic producer Misha's Vineyard have a glittering, award-filled track record. Tempo is brimming with red berry and plum flavours and hints of spicy oak. Delicate tannins round things out. Superb wine.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Sweetly ripe and immediately appealing, the wine shows ripe plum, floral, olive and subtle spice aromas on the nose, followed by a beautifully rounded palate delivering juicy fruit flavours with a lengthy silky finish. Friendly and gorgeously drinking."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A youthful, bright and refreshing aromatic lift with scents of fresh Otago cherries and black currant, there’s a mix of forrest berries and fruit spice, a fine soft brown spice and simple mineral quality. Salivating, fruity, varietal and new with flavours that reflect the bouquet, some raspberry and cranberry flesh layer in along with a light dried herb quality. Tannins are fine and easily dissolved on the palate, acidity adds freshness and pizazz. Oak aromas and flavours are light, but still provide foundation and structure. Well made, still new with a light taut palate squeeze. Probably the perfect red wine for summer 2023, served cool would work as well as regualr Pinot Noir service temp. Best drinking from 2023 through 2029."
