A lovely, elegant, perfectly balanced New Zealand Pinot Noir with seductive aromas of dark cherry and smoke. Almost full-bodied in richness, yet not heavy. Velvet texture. Pair with meaty fish dishes.
Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, lamb in a red wine sauce, roasted pork loin, tortiere.

Raspbery jam and cassis with touches of vanilla and baking spice. Delicious palate gives raspberries, cassis, earth, baking spice, vanilla with a touch of smoke. Extra-dry, silky smooth, mouth-watering, with long bright cassis finish.

Dark cherry, plum, flint, herbs, and sweet baking spice. This premium Small Parcels Pinot from Central Otago shows how rich and concentrated New Zealand Pinot can be. Beautifully balanced with great texture and fruit concentration, this is ideally suited for rich and flavourful cuisine such as rosemary braised lamb shanks or rosemary and dijon lamb lollipops. Tasted April 2016. 92 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
|Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A lovely example of a great Pinot Noir from the grapes of Central Otago. This 2013 vintage does not disappoint. The continental climate of the Central Otago region with its daily temperature extremes produces some great Pinot Noir - There is lots of blackberry, leather and oak on the nose, pepper and spice on the palate. Supple, well rounded tannins with a pleasant lingering finish. Perfect match to a wild mushroom risotto.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Very elegant and pretty pinot noir. Chocolate covered strawberry, rosewater – very lovely and rich! Beautiful acidity and elegant minerality.
|Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Bright garnet in the glass, enticing cherry, vanilla, and sweet cigar notes, perfectly balanced tannins and acidity, with mouthwatering and lingering cherry flavours. A wonderful expression of Pinot Noir from winemaker Anthony Walkenhorst. This Pinot Noir is done in the spirit of Kim Crawford's original creations using smaller batches from the best of the best grapes of this vintage.
Tasted April 3, 2016.
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Central Otago makes some of the best Pinot Noir and Kim Crawford's winery is one of my favourite for good value wines. Taut structure with aromas of dark cherry and some strawberry. Light bodied but full of flavour. Smooth tannins but a bite of acidity on the finish.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of strawberries and cherries, new leather. The taste is all sweet and tart cherry with tight acidity. Nice long, tart cherry finish. A very solid Pinot Noir and probably worth the extra money over the 'normal' Kim Crawford.
|Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful and rich while staying true to the PN purists. Not jammy but ample fruit. Not earthy but a bit of underbrush. Not heavy but certainly not light. I'm not sure this description helps you much so buy the wine.
|Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Seductive nose of pinot noir with hints of smoke. Smooth,silky palate. Its cranberry and cherry flavors make me want to enjoy a delicious duck magret. Not too jammy like it can be in the New World. Nice minerality to it too!
|Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Dark ruby colour. Heady aromas of black cherry, black berry and blueberry jam with violet notes. Medium bodied with juicy, ripe fruit and leaf leaf aromas, overlaid by very present toasty oak, throwing off the balance. Lacks the depth and concentration for the oak treatment.
