|Wineboy rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Nice nose. A bit less "juicy fruity" than typical for NZ PN, but I'm absolutely OK with that. Correct power, new world ripeness, with a bit softer acidity than a Burgundian PN might have.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Fragrant tart cherry, cola and bitter chocolate on the nose, repeated on the mouth-watering palate. Great acidity makes this medium-bodied Pinot extremely versatile with a variety of dishes, from roast duck, turkey to grilled salmon.
Tasted Nov. 2017

|Gwen Barton rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Aromas of cherry, raspberry and hint of violet. More cherry in the mouth along with plum, sweet spice and cedar which continue through to the lasting finish. Quite a nice wine. Would probably age well for another few years. Pair with roast lamb Tasted Nov. 2017
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
sparsely medium ruby colour with white rim. Aroma of freshly fallen wet autumn leaves, firm dark cherries, and oak. Warm mouthfeel, medium acidity, dry medium to low tannins, with a short red cherry finish. Score 90. (S.Segard, reviewed Nov. 19, 2017)
|Andrea Shapiro - Andrea's Wine Cellar rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Team tasting! Pale ruby with ripe strawberry, raspberry, lush fruit and a touch of earthiness. These are reflected perfectly on the palate with the addition of a little spicy smoked paprika heat. Medium plus acidity, light body with soft tannins. Fruity and spicy with a clean finish. Pair with trout amandine and quinoa salad. Tasted November 19 2017

Ruby in colour with aromas of cherry, chocolate, raspberry and earth. It is medium-bodied with flavours of tart cherry and ripe raspberry with a short cherry finish. This will pair well with salmon or chicken. Tasted on November 19, 2017.

|Simon Chen rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
it's a more new world pinot noir. Bright red fruits, nice fruits on the palate. I was hoping for more acidity for a new zealand pinot
|Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
Bright ruby colour with a watery rim. Notes of red berries and red cherry. Sweet spice and oaky notes on the finish. A nice medium bodied red suited to drink on its own or with game meat.
|From New Zealand's South Island, Whitehaven (2013) Pinot Noir is medium-bodied with satiny smooth ripe red cherries, and dark chocolate flavours on the palate. Pinot noir is New Zealand's benchmark red wine grape and is showing its very best in this wine. The PN grapes for this wine were sourced from select sites in six vineyards in the Awatere Valley, Wairau Valley and Southern Valley sub-regions of Marlborough. Pair with seared tuna steaks. - Community Wine Reviews|
