Deep ruby. Dark sweet plum, salty and floral. The palate is med-full bodied, med acidity, soft-med tannin. There is a dark savoury element that gives the wine gravitas. Beautiful balance. Power without weight. Powerful and beautiful. — a month ago
Pale ruby color.
Aromas of strawberry jam, buttered toast.
Dry. Flavors of fresh ripe strawberries, red cherry, hint of cream soda or something fizzy. Delicious!

Not as struck match as it was in its youth. Quite mineral on the nose, white florals with evidence of whole bunch in the ferment. A buttered toast component. A delicate yet intense palate if that makes sense. A saline note on the finish. More like a top quality Chablis than a White Burgundy. A top flight New Zealand Chardonnay from the Canterbury district in the South Island. Hard to find and overpriced at $195 AUD. I think the Australian importer is adding a hefty margin. I note it sells for $120NZD in New Zealand. — 10 months ago
See previous notes here on Delectable. Mid to pale ruby in colour. Pale yet powerful. Great aromatics of pansies, rose petals and violets also stalkiness. As Barb said the aromas of a beautiful garden. After a while an Animale, feral note not unlike some Burgundies we’ve had. Medium bodied palate - dried red fruits with a sweet yet savoury twist. A very polished new World Pinot by any measure. Tasters often identify with Central Otago and Martinborough for quality NZ Pinot Noir. Don’t forget about Canterbury in the South Island not far from the city of Christchurch. Luckily I have 2 left. Bob Campbell MW says drink through to 2025. — 2 months ago
