Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Leafy, dark fruit, spicy; juicy, quite fresh, with firm, fine tannins.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Rich, ripe red fruit aromas; Cocoa nibs, ripe and dried cherry on palate; lavender and earthy notes through to long finish. Silky mouthfeel with moderate tannins. Acidity rather pronounced, and dominates on the finish.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Open and aromatic, rich, but fresh cherry fruit with a floral lift. Succulent, pure-fruited palate, supple texture, layered with delicately savoury, meaty character.
