NEW OWNER SUPERDEAL
4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
With Sacred Hill recently undergoing a change in ownership, the new owners offered us deals on their freshly acquired portfolio. We chose three options from their excellent reserve range and can now bring them to you at a superdeal price.
This is exceptional Marlborough reserve-level pinot noir. 2020 was an excellent vintage and fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness. Careful handling of the fruit and ageing in French oak (25% new) has ensured a silky smooth texture and velvety tannins. Notes of cherry, chocolate and hints of spice shine through on the palate. A stunning buy for $17.99 on case buys.
Sam Kim writes "Beautifully ripe and fragrant, the wine shows dark plum, sweet cherry, olive, dark mushroom and almond characters. It's equally charming on the palate with lovely weight and supple mouthfeel, well supported by silky texture and polished tannins, offering excellent drinking."
The winery writes "This wine has a deep ruby hue and offers aromas of dark cherry, sage, shitake mushroom and black forest chocolate. Notes of nutmeg, violets and forest floor also shine through. The succulent palate has a rich entry which is sustained throughout and finishes with velvety tannins."
great value for money
