Sweet, stemmy, and slightly tropically-fruited on the nose with really nice layered complexity. On entry this is rather light and elegant with a very soft, round, caressing character. The strawberry fruit is fresh and set off by gently leafy and mineral tones that linger on the medium-length finish. 89pts

1st New Zealand Pinot I've tried, and it was very enjoyable. Very light on its feet, with cherry, raspberry, strawberries and a green floral element. Lively acidity balances the fruit very well. Not a whole lot on the finish, but a pleasant surprise on the whole.

Light bodied and in color. Soft and round mouth feel. Strawberry beginnings with a slightly unbalanced acidity that mellows as the taste progresses. Slight cherry finish. Decent value.

The nose showed blueberry and cherry with spicy vanilla and hints of undergrowth. On the palate, it was tight and focused with black cherry, spices and stems, leading to a finish with bright, tart red fruit. The texture was smooth yet with a stern acidic backbone, which detracted slightly from my overall impression of the wine.

Very good pinot for the money. Transparent purple color with a light body, silky mouth feel. Hints of cherries on the nose with an equal taste of red berries. Nicely balanced acidity with a subtle but pleasant finish. Great if you want a red for seafood or chicken.

A savoury nose leads into savoury cherry fruit in the mouth, well balanced. There's a hint of freshness to lighten up that savouriness and the whole sensation is silky smooth. It ends with good length making this great value for the £7.59 I paid for it at Waitrose in the UK.

Starts with some caramelly, cola-like notes, then adds cherries and a hint of green. Develops sassafras-wintergreen-root beer flavors, all carried across the palate on a soft, fruity core.

Finding a great value Pinot Noir can be challenging. You've probably heard how difficult Pinot Noir is to cultivate, requiring some hands in the vineyard to do it well, which often translates to big bucks on the consumer's end. Inexpensive Pinot Noir, even when drinkable, often lacks varietal identity ("this has notes of... red wine"). The Brancott 2009 Pinot Noir, however, is both delicious and distinctly Pinot. The aromas of pomegranate, tart cherry, baking spice, and a subtle umami nuance have depth and persistence. Light and refreshing, not thin and washed-out, this delivers incredible flavor for the money.

Smooth and polished, with pretty raspberry and floral character that lingers nicely on the superfine fnish. Drink now through 2005.

Sheer noir, this transparent black wine has a raspberry edge of flavor. That, along with the scent of violets, makes it easy to place with food, its acidity ready to cut through a salmon steak in a beefy wine reduction, or roasted marrow bones.

A delicate, small-scale pinot, this wine has good depth and brightness in both color and flavor. Its gentle, light cherry fruit will complement grilled chicken.

A lightweight, delicate Pinot Noir, with a light ruby hue and pretty cherry and herb flavors framed by oaky notes of brown sugar and vanilla. Good value.

Winemaker's Notes:

Deep garnet red in color, this wine exhibits cherry, plum and blackberry fruits accentuated with savory spice highlights. It has a fleshy mid-palate displaying ripe cherry, subtle spice and rich, velvety tannins, with fruit weight carrying the full length of the palate to its finish. The beauty of Pinot Noir is that it is always approachable when young, so this wine can be enjoyed upon release, but it nevertheless has sufficient tannin structure to enable it to develop and evolve with a further two or three years ageing. As with all Pinot Noir, it will perfectly suit duck dishes and red meat dishes incorporating mushrooms.
