Reviews and Ratings

Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I tasted this at the NZ wine show in Ottawa (2016), and for the price this is one of the standout pinot noirs. It has loads of ripe red cherries, high acidity with a mediumish body. It would be a perfect sipper on the patio, served slightly chilled or with cedar planked salmon.
This New Zealand red wine is made from vibrant and ripe Pinot Noir grapes and offers notes of black raspberry and dark cherry. Pair with grilled seafood. - Community Wine Reviews
