External Reviews for Kim Crawford Pinot Noir Marlborough Anderson Vineyard
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.
This Pinot Noir is an aromatic wine with black cherries and red currants on the nose, complex with integrated oak and a smoky bacon character.

A slightly chunky Pinot Noir, with sturdy black cherry fruit, mushroomy overtones and a cedary touch. Itrsquo;s full-bodied and mouthfilling, just lacks an extra measure of elegance, showing off some rough edges on the finish.
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 wine's seamless mid-palate texture but marked it down a bit for slightly dry tannins.
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 and appealing, with lots of mulberry, raspberry and gentle green herb flavors that linger on the smoothly polished finish. Drink now through 2007.
New Zealand is now acknowledged as one of the few countries to have successfully come to grips with this fickle, but supremely aristocratic grape variety. A combination of dry and moderate climates gives near perfect cool climate growing conditions and assists with the intense varietal characters in Marlborough grapes. This wine puts the NOIR into Pinot; a fine combination of dark cherries and red fruit abound. This is a fruit focused and velvety wine with rich flavours and soft tannins. Lean meats such as veal, venison or turkey, are a great match.
