If you haven't been introduced to the charms of Waipara Pinot Noir then this is a sensational wine to kick off with. Savoury and seductive. Jump in.
Sam Kim writes "It's complex and engaging on the nose showing dark plum, spiced cherry, olive, cedar and warm spice aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that's flowing and lingering. The wine offers excellent fruit purity together with seductive savoury nuances, elegantly framed by polished tannins. Superbly composed and harmonious."
The winery writes "A Pinot Noir with generous richness & flavor concentration. Layers of ripe fruit, floral and spice with a gentle tannin line. Unfined and bottled on site."
Cameron Douglas writes "Wild red flowers and red berries, distinctive soil and baking spices of wood aromas, nothing but pinosity within a harmonious bouquet. On the palate - delicious, ripe and fruity with flavours of spicy red cherry, red apple, currant, some plum and dried herb. The tannins add in a soft mealy texture and acidity carries the messages of youth and pinosity. A balanced and well made wine, harmonious and delicious."
