Even, moderately dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is elegantly proportioned with concentrated and densely packed, but refined aromas of dark cherry berry and raspberry liqueur notes. This has brilliant focus and purity, with very sensitive and integrated oaking. Medium-full bodied, rich and softly concentrated, but tightly bound fruit flavours of dark raspberries and cherries are the feature on palate. The fruit is supported by significant extraction, the tannins very fine and supple. Subtle, lacy acidity underlines the palate, enhancing the fruit richness and sweetness and provides energy and drive. Lifted, piquant flavours of dark cherries and raspberry liqueur flow to a very long, lingering, fine-textured finish. This is an elegant and concentrated Pinot Noir with focussed, piquant framboise flavours, a very fine mouthfeel and extraction, and subtle acid vibrancy. Match with roasted duck and pork, and with Asian cuisine over the next 6-8 years. Rating: 19.0/20.0 Raymond Chan Wine Reviews 

Deeply scented with floral, mineral, raspberry and fresh herb flavours. Fine, focussed wine with a lengthy finish. Shows plenty of power delivered with great subtlety. Alcohol: 13.5%; Drink: 2014-2023; Rating: 18.5 Points (95/100) Bob Campbell MW; Decanter Magazine

An outstanding pinot. The youthful and perfumed bouquet shows red/blueberry, floral, spice and elegantly infused cedary oak aromas. The palate is succulent and velvety with rounded mouthfeel, leading to a superbly long, silky finish. The wine is expressive and engaging while exhibiting restraint too. Very promising. At its best: 2016 to 2022. Sept 2013. Rating: 95 Points (100); Sam Kim - Wine Orbit 

A lively wine with spicy red fruits and herbs, suggestions of mineral and licorice, a savoury undertone, an exciting herbal edge and a fresh, crisp finish. Nov 2013; Charmian Smith - Otago Daily Times
