Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Jammy, oaky, lacking concentration; not quite ripe, with leafy fruit and green astringent tannins.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Restrained red fruit nose, yet vivid cherry compote, pomegranate and cigar smoke on palate, with long, nutty, earthy finish. Light and fresh, with fine grained tannins.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Deep colour. Intense cherry fruit, silky, oak-softened texture, fresh, but not aggressive acidity and layered with some savoury notes and delicate smoky bacon oak.
