95 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
This is lush Canterbury Pinot with layers of spice raisin and berries with a gorgeous earthiness from the up and coming team at Bone Line. Serious care and time has gone into this bottle and you can tell with every sip. Perfect anytime Pinot with balanced acidity and silky tannins.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Fantastic bouquet with aromas of mineral and sense of place first, then red berry fruits of cherry and red plum, light delicate sweetness of barrel then a lifted rose scent showcases complexity and charm. On the palate - youthful with plenty of tension and poise, but showing an underlying core of varietal light red fruit flavours, fine chalky textured tannins, decent acid line and fine savoury dried herb moments. A lovely wine with charm, elegance, flavour and texture."
The winery writes "Softly compelling ruby-red in colour, a hue of radiant warmth. Elegant, aromatic cluster of red and black cherries, red berries, earthy summer undergrowth, wild herbs with an underlying smokiness. Red fruit on entry, silky smooth texture, morello cherry, mixed spices with a river stone minerality on the reprise. Gentle support from oak, built around a delicate frame of acidity. A nod to the old world — wise, calm and assured."
