AWARDS AND REVIEWS
18,5 Points, Julia Harding for Jancis Robinson - "Mid crimson. Perfumed, highly aromatic red fruit brought into line with a touch of spice and a hint of that whole-bunch freshness - not in the least unripe but adding a savoury note. This is just gorgeous on the palate, sensual, deep and long but also fresh and vital. There's finesse to the tannins but they are bold enough to shape the framework for the fruit. You can tell this is a wine made by someone steeped in the best of both Burgundy and New Zealand. There's sweetness to the fruit but sufficient savour and spice to make it a complete wine, with, as Jancis would say, a beginning, a middle and an end. And it has terrific length. This has to be the best Marlborough Pinot I have tasted"
96 points, Bob Campbell MW -
"A very Burgundian-style Pinot Noir with floral, cherry and sweet, sappy flavours. Remarkably approachable despite a solid backbone of tannins, which are ripe and soft. Elegant wine with power and intensity. Super-stylish wine that is distinctive and very appealing. I love it."
