FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
92 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
Sublime Central Otago Pinot Noir from the hot-to-trot Summerhouse team. This is a pinot noir of incredible complexity and texture and it's right on the money. Medium weight, very supple tannins and plenty of red fruit characters. Absolutely superb and a steal with the Advintage Advantage.
Lifted dark plums and spice toasty oak. Rich, sweet fruit flavours. A concentrated wine, with lovely fine grained tannins on the palate and a very long finish.
Sam Kim writes "Sweetly fruited and beautifully fragrant, the bouquet shows Black Doris plum, cherry, roasted nut and subtle mushroom aromas, followed by a succulent palate that's plump and lingering. It's harmonious and soothing with a lengthy supple finish, making it seductively appealing."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "Vibrant, youthful, immediately varietal and fruit centric bouquet - aromas of dried raspberry and dark cherry, a light dried herb note and toasty baking spices of oak. Complexity increases as the wines opens up in the glass. On the palate - tense, youthful, fruity, fresh and tasty. Flavours mirror the nose with moderate to firm tannins and acidity for contrast. Well made, balanced, even and ready to enjoy from today and through 2025."
Very Very nice and a very good pinot
