4.5 STARS 91/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Always a prime example of the fuller Bannockburn style, this popular Central Otago Pinot has developed quite the reputation as more and more customers become aware of its obvious charms. Plush and quite opulent for wine in this price bracket, it's one of those immediately attractive pinots that delivers everything you could ask for under $30. Great buying.
The sun-drenched, rocky terraces of the Diggings vineyard create a delicious wine with charm, elegance, clean fruit flavours, and length. Beautifully perfumed with a red cherry like richness and a deep but soft texture. This wine lets the vineyard do the talking. Simply delicious.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Charming and elegantly fragrant on the nose with sweet cherry, thyme, roasted nut and smoked game nuances, leading to a finely flowing palate that's juicy and beautifully rounded. It's supple and smooth with a lingering silky finish."
