Awards, Reviews and other Notes

93 pts Wine Spectator Web Only - 2018
Complex and intense, with clove, dried orange peel and vanilla bean accents adding a warm, smooth vibe to the core of dried cherry, wild strawberry and raspberry fruit. Spicy tobacco, cigar box and dried earth aromas linger on the finish, which goes on and on. Drink now through 2030. 40 cases imported.

96 pts James Suckling, Oct 2018
A remote parcel from Earnscleugh, this is looking great in 2016 with abundant ripe cherries, presented in a sturdy yet elegant frame of fine, long tannins. This hits a new level of silkiness and swagger in 2016. Drink or hold.

92 pts Wine Enthusiast, July 2018
Actor Sam Neill is behind this highly regarded Otago label. While is sits firmly in premium territory – and could easily age for the next 10 years – this Pinot is undeniably approachable now. The nose offers heady aromas of red and black berries, beets, vanilla, hot chocolate, Middle Eastern spices and stalky cinnamon. The palate is elegant and tightly wound, with an earthy core and a savory finish.

Winemaker Notes

Savoury spicy notes, with dark red fruit, wild thyme and char aromatics. This leads to an elegant well textured palate showing great length, nuance and drive.
