Natalie's Score: 92/100
Beautifully balanced! This New Zealand Pinot Noir seems to get better every year, and this is no exception. Lovely cherry-berry flavours, yet not sweet. Great mouth-watering juiciness for a wide range of foods, yet not acidic. Superb craftsmanship. Highly recommended.
Pinot Noir food pairings: pulled-pork sandwiches, roasted chicken, salmon ceviche.

Very good Pinot.
|Shelley Harris rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Delicate aromas of cinnamon, vanilla and cherry, with a fruity smooth finish. I see this wine pairing well with grilled seasonal vegetables with a balsamic glaze.
|Craig Kuziemsky rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Cherry and red current on the nose with currant, raspberry and oak flavors.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Cherry, candied berries, and cinnamon spice aromas and a sweet and tart cheery taste with a nice, silky mouth feel make this a great example of a new world Pinot.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Cherry candy aroma, beautiful palate of fresh picked raspberries. Refreshing and fruity.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Bright ruby, with cherry, strawberry and a bit of earthiness on the nose. Very smooth drinking, with the same flavours on the palate.
|Anthony Hillman - WSET ADV rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
Bright aromas of dark cherry, earth, and leather, with a hint of strawberry jam are reflected on the juicy palate with cherry fruitiness, black pepper, baking spices, and a little oak, supported by medium chalky tannins. A medium bodied, fruity, food friendly companion for mushroom risotto or herb crusted salmon.
Ready to drink now. Will likely gain complexity over next 4 or 5 years in bottle at risk of compromising its fruit forward style.
Tasted November 2014
