Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Seductive, leafy, red fruit; vibrant red fruit, with some sweet, spicy oak, edgy tannins and firm acidity. Needs food.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Toasty oak and delicate ripe blackberry aromas; fruit carries through to palate, and oak has very light touch. Very light and supple tannins. Long, savoury finish. Eggshell note on palate mars the purity.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Quite fragrant and varietally expressive, with cherry, rose petal and spice. A fairly light palate, true in flavour, with a lightly creamy texture and touches of spice, but not a great deal of depth.
