Awatere River

Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Youthful, woody spice; soft red fruit, raspberry jam, decent fresh acidity, medium weight dry tannins, medium, warmish finish.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Mid garnet colour; straw and earth nose leads to bright, sweet fruit and pretty, floral mid-palate. Fairly simple, with light and graceful tannins and long finish with coffee oak notes.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Gently fragrant with rose-petal, red fruit and spice aromas. Fairly full palate with, oak-softened texture, supple fruit and just a little heat on the finish.
