Classic Kiwi Pinot with beautifully balanced wild strawberry fruit and a brooding intensity on the mid palate. One of the best Marlborough PNs.

Mid ruby, juicy blackberries on nose, dry rounded tannins. Delicious spicy dark red fruits with a touch earthy leaf. Lovely wine to welcome us to NZ!

Color of seducing ruby with purple hue. Nose of milk, nice dark fruits like ripe cherry, spice, coke cola. Taste is silky, with sweet vanilla, cherry, dried seaweed, juicy grapes, low tannins, spices, and a bit zest. Aftertaste is smooth, spice, and some more sweetness. Easy to drink, with good flavors and complexity.

Bright ruby colour. Lovely easy drinking style that improved further on the second day, revealing more complexity. The oak is possibly a touch too prominent at this age - might integrate more in a year or two. Reminiscent of some Tassie pinots. Good value.

La robe pourpre de ce vin reflète à merveille son absence de défauts. Les arômes minéraux et de fruits rouges, tout comme les épices présentes en bouche, lui confèrent une complexité très agréable. J'ai adoré ce vin !
