Their 2019 Silver Linings Marlborough Pinot Noir is vibrant and engaging, with layers of flavours in the cherry and red berry spectrum on the palate. Subtle spicy notes and fine grained tannins add complexity and texture. A lovely wine from an up and coming winemaker.
Sam Kim writes "This is complex and engaging, showing spiced cherry, clove, thyme and smoked game characters on the nose. It's concentrated and persistent on the palate, delivering silky texture and fine grainy tannins, finishing firm and wonderfully long."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Tasted over five days this wine has an impressive consistency, purity and ageing potential. From day one through five the core of fruit remained the focus with aromas and flavours of dark red berries, layers of dark cherry and plum, some raspberry and rose flavours. Layers of wood spice and fine tannins with medium+ acidity hold the all the attributes together leading to a balanced, lengthy and even finish. Well made, a wine for today and the cellar."
The winery writes "This is complex and engaging Pinot Noir, showing spiced cherry, clove, thyme & smoked game characters on the nose. While concentrated and persistent on the palate, it delivers a silky texture and fine grainy tannins finishing firm and wonderfully long. Only 2867 bottles were produced."
