Light in color, but much heavier in taste than earlier Pinot Noirs. Tanniny/sour/bitter at the end. Smokey smell. Read more

Why do I feel like this is a guilty pleasure wine? It's cheap. It's everywhere. More importantly, it's smooth and good. For some reason, I'd like to not like it, but I do for some reason. what?

Nice light fruit notes. Great wine on it's own. Does not pair well with scallops.

Colour:Bright red with purple and crimson notes.Aroma:An enticingly aromatic wine showing notes of dark cherries and strawberries with the alluring complexity of well integrated oak.Palate:Vibrant, fresh fruit flavours underpinned by nuances of sweet, smoky oak. Good firm tannins give the wine length and weight. You can savour the wine long after it has left your palate.Food Match:Ideal with lamb or pork chops. Suited to most red meats and exceptionally good as a wine to enjoy all on its own!Cellar:Very approachable and enjoyable now, but you can cellar up to 5 years with confidence.

Palish red. Sweet red berries and spices on the nose. Ripe, high-toned and easygoing, with a creamy sweetness to the flavors of cherry and orange peel. I enjoyed this winersquo;s seamless mid-palate texture but marked it down a bit for slightly dry tannins.

Flavors of cherry and wild strawberry, silky tannins, and a light kiss of oak all hang in perfect balance here, and the finish lingers. Another in a string of tremendous efforts from one of the most talented Pinot Noir producers in New Zealand.

For the price, this is a good introduction to NZ Pinot Noir, showing a smooth mouthfeel and smoky. briary complexities layered over tangy beet and cherry fruit.

Light, with pretty cherry and wild strawberry flavors on a tangy frame, lingering easily. Drink now through 2012.

Winemaker's Notes:

Distinctively Pinot Noir with berry fruits especially raspberry wild strawberry and cherry and hints of rhubarb. A subtle dusty herb complexity is beginning to occur. A savoury Pinot Noir with elegant ripe fruit coupled with soft tannins and a touch of oak.
