Pinot Noir 2016
Sale $42.00 $37.80
A Pinot Noir that is ripe and juicy, with spice and dark fruit aromas and flavours, (think of plum and boysenberry) this wine with its smokey, savoury, earth characters draws one in. There is bright acid and texturered minerality which gives persistent length. A wine for the future.
5 Stars, CUISINE Magazine May 2018:
"Pretty and savoury scents. The fruit is juicy, lively and flavoursome, with fine tannins and fresh acidity providing energy and length." This was the only North Island Pinot Noir to get 5 Stars.

Very attractive bouquet filled with scents of fallen leaves and red berries, there’s a fine chalky mineral quality as equal in power as the fruit. Aromas of barrel and bottle age layer in scents of nut and lees, violet and old rose with a whisper of leather and five spice. Delicious on the palate, silky smooth in a medium weighted expression. Fine tannins and medium acidity, core flavours of red berry and nut, soft smoky wood and old rose. A love wine, ready to drink from 2022 through 2028+. 94 Points
