“Firm and supple, already elegant with a lovely, soft, silky smooth mouth feel and lovely sweet cherry and berry fruit. It is so smooth, but there’s a seriousness about it as well as perfect drinkability. Great intensity of flavour. Classy and effortless.” (96 points) Trophy Winner, Best NZ pinot noir.

“Drinking well early…an elegant and supple wine.” - Michael Cooper, Winestate Magazine

“Outstanding - a wine of superior character and style. Enticing, balanced and well made.” - Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

“Combining fruit power and elegance, this magnificently styled Pinot shows dark cherry, sweet strawberry, thyme, dark mushroom and floral characters with nuances of game and toasted almond. The palate delivers excellent concentration and refinement, offering savoury complexity backed by silky texture and polished tannins. Sophisticated and engaging.”

- Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
