Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Very appealing, darkly fruity, with spicy oak undertones; more evident oak in the mouth, with generous fruit to match.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Delicate floral, angelica and candied cherry aromas, with evident oak. Palate full of sweet, ripe red plum and cranberry fruit, with a dusty cocoa and roasted almond note. Oak follows the fruit, and acidity follows the oak, leading to a sharp, but very long finish. Balanced and supple.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Aromatic, warm, ripe, black cherry and vanilla aromas. Concentrated, dense palate with smoky oak and clean, dark cherry fruit, black pepper notes and some fresher herb notes. Silky texture. Still quite young.
