93 POINTS | Cameron Douglas
Impressive Pinot Noir from one of Martinborough's preeminent producers. This is medium bodied, elegantly framed Pinot with gorgeous mouthfeel and an array of delicately spiced plum and savoury cherry notes on the palate. All class.
The winery writes "Medium-full bodied in weight, the wine treads lightly despite its formidable fruit concentration and ageing potential. Finely rendered tannins and plush cherry fruit deliver both sumptuousness and structure, a fine dusting of French oak showcasing the floral and dried herb nuances on the complex palate. A serious and stylish Pinot Noir from one of the finest vintages we’ve ever experienced, this is a classic Palliser Pinot from day one."
Cameron Douglas writes "Very enticing bouquet with a captivating core of pinosity - fruit aromas of sweet red plum and dark red very ripe cherry, scents of sweet violet and rose then a silty, fine gravel soil minerality. The aromas of barrel spices are abundant too with clove and roasted vanilla pod. A dry wine with fruit and oak flavours that mirror the nose contrasted by an abundance of fine tannins, medium+ acidity, noticeable concentration and length. Well made and ready to imbibe from today and through 2026+."
