Producer:

Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Herbal, baked tamarillo; quite smooth, but tannins not quite ripe, leaving dry astringent finish.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Raw bramble fruit aromas, with a slightly soapy note. Intense tobacco notes on palate, and raw berries, but still soapy. Acidity is at the core of this wine, with gentle tannins and long, savoury finish. Quite lean, but interesting.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Fragrant, clean, raspberry aromas. Medium-bodied, pure and quite elegant. Slightly tart acidity and not complex or long, but balanced and has clear varietal character.
