Natalie's Score: 92/100
Fleshy ripe dark berries with a velvet texture on the tongue. This New Zealand Pinot Noir is pure decadence. Pair with guinea fowl.
Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, lamb in a red wine sauce, roasted pork loin, tortiere.

|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Pronounced juicy ripe mixed berries and floral aromas with a silky smooth mouthfeel, ripe concentrated berry flavours and a long allspice finish. Acidity is moderate and balanced with mild tannins. A value-priced rich and flavourful Central Otago New Zealand Pinot Noir considering other similar styles are about double this price point. Enjoy with garlic and herb seared rib-eye. Tasted Mar 2017
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A tart and dry cool cimate Central Otago NZ Pinot Noir which jumps out of the glass with ripe blueberry and cranberry and meets your palate with blackberry, pomegranate and a subtle layer of savoury. Complex, balanced and ready to enjoy. Pair with Italian antipasti, roasted rack of lamb or balsamic drizzled salmon lollipops. Great value! Tasted March 2017. 90 points
|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This New Zealand Pinot comes from Central Otago, in the south. Pinots from places like Marlborough tend to have more red fruit and are quote bright, while in the south you get a lot more dark fruit. This comes from a single parcel belonging to Kim Crawford, the wine pioneer from Marlborough.
Nice, deep colour. Medium garnet. Deep at the core and watery at the rim.
Aromatically, there's some black plum, cherry, anise, roses, earth, cocoa dust, and cranberry.
The flavours are more fruit forward and spice in the back. There's some really tasty acidity that keeps the fruit really fresh and tasty. More cranberry, plum, amd blackberry. Some subtle anise and clove on the finish. Pleasant and bright. Not overly oaky.
Decent wine for the price especially. A single vineyard offering at this price is rare.
Put this with borscht and sesame crackers.
|From the Central Otago, South Island wine region, Kim Crawford's Rise & Shine Pinot Noir (2014) is a well-priced single-vineyard PN. Look for ripe berry, black cherry, dark chocolate and cake spice on this creamy-palate Pinot Noir with a kiss of vanilla finish. Drink now and for the next five years. - Community Wine Reviews|
