Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Jammy, smoky, hedgerow fruit; bouncy, pretty red fruit, raspberries, red cherries; bright full-flavoured, cherry-ripe, with some good firm acidity and fine tannins. Long. Very good.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Confected berry aromas. Juicy acidity helps to lift a dense core of fruit, yet wine lacks true vibrancy. Vanilla and cream oak notes throughout, with mid-length finish. Sinewy tannins.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Fragrant, floral, sweet, wild strawberry and raspberry aromas and flavours with a subtle, sweet-herb lift and mineral hint on the palate. Very discreet, fine grained tannins. Not hugely complex, but expressive Pinot and well balanced.
