VC: Hawkes Bay is not known for Pinot Noir production, but the wines made from vineyards grown on the inland plateau at Maraekakaho are always of a very high and consistent quality. Though not reviewed at press time, this 2008 Pinot from Sileni is another fine ambassador for the plateau. Look for lots of cherry and other dark fruit aromas backed by smooth tannins and a substantial finish. My note: lovely, lovely layers of fresh field strawberries and raspberries interspersed with violets blowing in a summer wind. Carefree, silky, supple and medium-bodied.
