Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Some spice and tarry oak, red fruit with a hint of talcum powder; middleweight dark red fruit, forward, fleshy, with some relatively sturdy tannins. A bit four-square

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Deep crimson colour; herbal, black fruit and leafy notes on nose. Truffle, savoury and damson on palate. Fresh, zesty acidity lifts, and tannins are firm and a little angular – will soften with time or food.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Vibrant, youthful colour. Attractive, pure, perfumy nose. Silky, round palate with a pure fruit core and very, fine lacy tannins; showing just a touch of heat on the finish.
