Aromas of raspberry and watermelon with a hint of earthiness. Flavors of raspberry, pomegranate and portobello mushroom with enough acidity to keep it exciting. Smooth finish with a little bit of tannins. Paired with duck quite well.

Light Ruby with red fruit aromas. On the palate strawberry and cherry with lively acidity and silky tannins. Nice value.

It's not often that I give a $20 bottle this high of a rating, but I'm very impressed. The nose is very attractive - bright red fruit, plummy characteristics, a whif of uncooked bacon and oak char. Palate is seamless and elegant with some floral notes and dried cranberry alongside chewy overripe sweet plum. Has a RRV-like purity to it, but with some oak treatment that I'm loving, some fresh strawberries on the finish.. very well put together pinot.. this makes me want to explore this producer a bit more!

For a $20 bottle, this is surprisingly good. Light bodied, but bold fruit flavors.

First time I tried a Pinot from this region. Dark berry. Light body.

different. A tart cherry pucker with a slightly chemical finish...I am anxious to taste more NZ Pinot, but this one didn't impress.
