Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Open, broad shouldered, a touch hot and baked on finish.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Very fragrant: peony and rhubarb aromas. Ripe and sweet fruit on palate: juicy strawberries and blueberries, but also a grassy, slightly green note. Nettles. Oak adds a dark layer of flavour and firmness to the tannins which are moderate but angular. Mid-length.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Aromatic, very ripe, black cherry aromas with hints of sandalwood. Concentrated, spicy-peppery black cherry fruit on palate. Full and generous, but chewy and slightly hot and tarry.
