The Ned

Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

A little shy and understated on the nose, but palate appeals. Attractive red fruit, with undertones of spicy oaky and flowers. Pleasing austerity and quite good length.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Taut, delicate floral perfume, like an English garden. Ripe raspberry and blackberry gives way to savoury and mineral notes, but finish is driven by brawny acidity. Well-judged oak, but mid length.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Fresh, lightly spicy, floral and raspberry aromas. Soft, fresh, summer pudding fruit on the palate with touches of spice, but not much substance or length.
