Awards, Reviews and other Notes

90 pts James Suckling October 2018
Fresh aromas, deep flavors and a handy, fleshy structure. This is packed with bright red cherries and made for immediate drinking.
88 pts Wine Enthusiast November 2019
A mélange of ripe red and black fruits, crushed violets, baking spices and woody notes make up the nose on this plush Pinot. The tannins are a little chunky amidst the silky mouthfeel and this could use more of the elegance this variety so willingly offers. This is a fruit-forward, oak-forward Pinot for everyday drinking

Winemaker Notes

This wine celebrates Pinot Noir in Central Otago. Dark cherry and wild raspberry dominate with a briary note in the background; soft sweet brown spice characters add detail. Dark berry notes, framed by dried herb elements lead the wine onto the palate; the wine flows with good texture. Fine elegant tannins rise out of the mid-palate and then are displaced by the wine’s crunchy cherry acidity. Refreshing and engaging.
