91 pts Wine Spectator 'Smart Buys' 12/31/18
Plush raspberry and maraschino cherry flavors are bright and fleshy, with details of rosemary, cedar, nutmeg and white pepper. Offers terrific detail, an aromatic flourish and a long, expressive finish. Drink now through 2029.

90 pts Wine Enthusiast Magazine
A light, bright wine, the nose is an enticing combo of red currants, beetroot, orange rind, sumac, and smoke, with a hint of toasty oak in there, too. Acidity on the palate is on the lean side, not helped by the rather jagged oak, but the citric orange rind flavors keep things bouncy and bright. Drink now.

Winemaker Notes

Selected parcels of Pinot Noir from our Sandy Creek Vineyard and neighbouring blocks in Marlborough have gone in to producing our 2016 Sherwood Pinot Noir. Harvesting the fruit early April in great conditions it was transported to the winery and tipped into 5 tonne fermenters. After a six-day cool soak, the fermentation began on its own accord. The cap was hand plunged twice a day over the 17 day skin contact period. The wine was then pressed off skins, aged for 5 months in barrel, lightly blended, fined and bottled.
