Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Youthful and fresh, with restrained fruit; a little peppery in the mouth with tight bite. Will round out with time.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Leathery, egg shell aromas show some reduction present. Rich berry compote with a heavy spicing of oak on the palate gives mouth-filling, but rather clumsy character. Tannins initially supple but have a hard edge on finish, which is long but very sweet.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Ripe, strawberry nose and with a vanilla-cream note. Sweet, supple, pure red berry fruit palate, rounded out with oak. Attractive and balanced without being complex.
