Made from grapes grown in Alexandra and Gibbston, two of Central Otago's cooler subregions. Moderately intense pinot noir with a savoury, smoky, dried herb, dark berry, plum and stemmy characters. A distinctive wine that offers value at this price.
Date Tasted: March 2021; Alcohol: 13%; Bob Campbell MW; The Real Review
Attractively fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows sweet plum, toasted nut, mushroom and mixed spice aromas, leading to a succulent palate displaying elegant weight and supple mouthfeel. It's smooth and lingering with youthful tasty flavours. At its best: now to 2024. Date Tasted: March 2021; Rating: 91 Points; Sam Kim; Wine Orbit
