Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Smoky spicy oaky, soft, easy fruity Pinot laced with balsamic spice with freshness and clean bite, good length and pleasing richness.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Fruity aromas. Ripe cherry and blackberry on palate, with clotted cream, dark chocolate and sandalwood notes. Long but surprisingly thin finish after plenty of fruit weight in the mid-palate. Thinness is accentuated by rather angular tannins and fresh acidity

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Fragrant, expressive – roses, sweet red cherries and sandalwood – but doesn’t quite deliver the fruit follow-through on the palate. A little too much oak for the fruit.
