Peter McCombie MW

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Vanilla and spice, fragrant: quite oaky but there is good depth of fruit to balance, with fresh acidity and firm, ripe tannins. Good length.

Christine Parkinson

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

Dusty, sawmill aromas; bright, juicy black cherry and blood orange fruit on palate with a touch of earthiness. Oak is moderate, despite the nose, and fruit holds centre stage to the end. Sinewy tannins, with integrated acidity.

Joanna Simon

Tasting: Marlborough Pinot Noir

A lot of oak on nose – almost Rioja-like. Dominates the palate too, although underneath there’s an attractive core of cherry-raspberry fruit and a framework of fine tannin and acidity.
