Hallon och andra röda frukter, bra syra, bra fat, bra balans. Lång lång eftersmak. Riktigt bra pinot. Och riktigt bra vin med adress — a day ago
Tasted the ‘13 vintage not long ago while it was fantastic I felt it just slightly passed its peak. This 15’ is in top form. Nice cherry fruit concentration and freshness on the nose. The palate is a bit richer than the nose suggests with dark plum and abundant earthy elements. Lingering mellow tannins.
Fruits from Wairau Valley. 12 months in French oak barrel, 35% new. — a month ago

Fire & Ice; Second post in 2023 of this bottle, first post we still had snow, second we have no... Perhaps some variation against our favor tonight, this seems a little flat, but should be other than...🤷🏻♂️ — 3 months ago
Medium ruby, medium- intensity aromas red fruits cherry fig pips, tobacco. Dry with medium+ acidity medium alcohol and medium + fine tannins. On the palate lots of cranberries and sage and ash. A bit one dimensional and lacking complexity. — a day ago
Raspberry, floral, wet earth nose. Savory, blackberry, long finish. Smooth tannins. — 3 months ago
Dark cherry and briar. On the palate medium + intensity - heavy spice. No other word for it but delicious. One of the jewels of Central Otago along with Block 3. A gift from a good mate who loves new world Pinot Noir, for my 70th last year. A gorgeous wine. — 3 months ago
