Yealands Estate

Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Tarry, earthy, leafy, dark red fruit; solid, dark fruit, black cherries, quite fresh, with firm grip, needing a little time to come around. Some ambition.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Floral and cherry notes on nose, leading to strawberry, black cherry and rose character on palate. Lovely silky mouthfeel, with sinewy tannins and fresh acidity. Alcohol feels a little warmer than it is – accentuated by spiciness of wood, perhaps?

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Very fragrant with sweet red berries and a hint of vanilla. Sweet, fragrant fresh, cherry and strawberry fruit .with delicately spicy oak and good length.
