FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Great buying here from a brand synonymous with generosity and full flavoured wines. This is Central Otago Pinot like it used to be - loaded with dark cherry fruits with some herbal complexity and lovely silken mouthfeel. It's a model we wish more producers still favoured, as we know our clients really love this style. Great value. Highly recommended.
Sam Kim writes "Sweetly fruited and instantly appealing, the wine shows dark cherry, thyme, warm spice and cedar characters. It's equally satisfying on the palate, delivering terrific fruit purity and intensity, combined withy velvety texture and refined tannins, finishing long and delicious."
The winery writes "The 2019 Thornbury Pinot Noir is a beautifully perfumed, rich and full-bodied with hints of spice and dark cherry fruit notes. The palate is soft and juicy with a velvety texture."
