Very juicy, cherry-berry flavours and roundness in this gloriously happy New Zealand Pinot Noir. This medium-bodied red wine with dance with your senses, and your food, from planked salmon to roast chicken. Top me up!

Reviews and Ratings
|Philippe Perreault, Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Deep ruby color!
notes of cherry, raspberry, bleuberry, cigar box and herb.
The tannins are structured, the body is complex and the finish is long.
That's a true expression of Pinot Noir to match red meat!
Serve it at 15-16 degrees.
Can be aged up to 7-8 years.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful deep ruby colour. Aromas include cherry, raspberry, oak, spice and dried cranberry. On the palate, the oak is subtle and not overpowering, the cherry is tart and there is good acidity and a longer finish.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A deeper, fleshier Pinot noir. Blackberry and cherry, smoke and herbaceousness. Plush berry with a touch of green herb on the palate. A good BBQ wine.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Strawberry, cherry and cranberry aromas with a cranberry and sour cherry flavour with a bit of tannin. There's a nice long tart cherry finish. A well balanced wine with nice acidity.
|Chris Coughlin - WSET level 3 grad rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Plum and raspberry nose with a hint of leafy-ness (if that isn't a word, it is now). Similar palate but add good acidity and warming affect.
|Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
With lifted red fruit and spice, typical of New Zealand Pinot Noir this wine has mouth-watering acidity, medium tannins, and medium body.
Pair this food-friendly wine with grilled chicken or gourmet burgers.
Drink now or keep up to 18 months.
Date tasted: August 2014.
|Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:|
August 17, 2014: Medium ruby, expressive nose with cherry, raspberry, dried cranberry, a bit of floral and spice. Cherry, red berry, french oak masking some fruit and add to some tannic grip. Light bodied with a medium cherry and oak finish, this would benefit from a few more years to better integrate the wood.
