Organic, juicy, full bodied Pinot produced by New Zealand's most awarded winery. Savoury, juicy red fruits exploding on the palate with a touch of spice. Easy and delicious, right in the zone. Brilliant value for money.
Sam Kim writes "Beautifully styled and elegantly fragrant, showing sweet cherry, mixed spice, thyme, warm mushroom and roasted nut characters. The palate delivers ripe fruit flavours together with rounded mouthfeel and silky tannins, finishing long and comforting."
Bob Campbell MW writes "Medium-bodied pinot noir with a mix of fruit and savoury flavours including dark cherry, liquorice, dried herbs and toasty oak. A soft-textured wine with a lingering finish."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Bright, varietal and fruity core of red berries, cherry and sweet red plum, a touch of red currant then mild baking spices of wood. Dry on the palate with a core of red berry and plum flavours tat reflect the nose, fine to moderate tannins, plenty of contrasting acidity and lengthy Pinot Noir centric finish. Balanced and well made. The Cellar Selections wines from this iconic producer always over deliver for the price."
