Natalie's Score: 93/100
A medium-bodied, bright and juicy Pinot Noir from New Zealand's South Island. Silky on the palate with bright, ripe raspberry and strawberry flavours, cinnamon spice with a medium-plus finish on the palate. So enjoyable now and for the next three years.
Pinot Noir food pairings: planked salmon, roast beef, turkey, pork tenderloin, coq au vin.
Terrific Turkey Wine

|Jisun Hahn CAPS Certified Somm rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Elegant and smooth, this medium body Pinot Noir is a lovely example of how a wine can be subtle yet linger long enough to make an impression. Lots of red fruit on the palate, strawberries and ripe cherries with an undertone of mushroom, cinnamon hearts and pretty red flowers. I would enjoy this with roasted Cornish game hen on a bed of wild grains tossed with toasted almonds and dried cranberries.
|Jenny Ratcliffe-Wright CWM rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Light and fragrant on the nose with hints of farmyard and forest floor, with a delicate and elegant perfume. Notes of cherry cola and spice on the palate ending in a long finish that is powerful right to the end. Some real strength to this wine, don't be fooled by it's delicate nose. Serve with salt and five spice grilled chicken and fragrant rice. @wrightwineblog

A light to medium-bodied Pinot Noir from New Zealand, this wine will appeal to a large range of wine preferences. Raspberry and strawberry aromas with light oak influence on the palate. A hint of sweetness on the finish, a wine that is not complex so enjoy now. Serve with roasted pork or poultry, lightly herbed salmon, or for sipping with mild appetizers.
