Bright youthful Ruby colour and an inviting fragrance of red and dark fruits, faint notes
of sun-warmed dried wild herbs, forest floor, and sweet spice nuances are the first
aromatic impressions the nose detects after a swirl of the glass.
The flavours mirror the aroma yet refine the fruit to taste memories of ripe red berries
and dark cherries, so typical of a vibrant Central Otago Pinot Noir. This sensory experience is supported by the elegantly balanced structure of the wine. Fine tannins and a nice vein of gentle acidity leave a juicy mouthfeel.
This is a very appealing, delicious medium-bodied wine of excellent length.
A vinous gem for now and years to come.
Cameron Douglas, Mindfood Magazine
July 2022 Edition
Youthful, vibrant, fresh and varietal with aromas of dark cherry and raspberry, layers of wood spices and smoky qualities then mineral earth and clay scents. Excellent on the palate with dark berry flavours and firm tannins, a backbone of acidity and a complex detailed finish. Youthful, salivating, fresh, dry and complex. Best drinking from 2024 through 2030+.
