Product:

Auntsfield, Road Ridge, Southern Valleys, Marlborough, 2010

Producer:

Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Ripe, exotic spice, heady; plump youthful, dark fruit, backed by vanilla spiced oak, a touch angular, needs time to soften.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Bold, fresh raspberry and plum compote aromas with a spicy oak note; lovely intense palate full of ripe summer fruit and vanilla custard notes, with an earthy, savoury underpinning. Very long finish, which introduces a floral element. A grippy edge to the tannins, but balanced and supple. Very appealing style, will soften with time.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Attractively scented – floral with black cherry notes and a hint of candied orange. Full palate with, concentrated fruit and plenty of flesh around a firm central core. Quite oaky, but crisp and well sustained.
