WINE NOTES: 100% Pinot Noir, Clones 777, 667 and 115. Dark ruby-red wine which looks very appealing in the glass. Dark raspberries and black cherries blossom into floral notes and a spicy rich finish. Ripe plum and raspberries embrace with nuances of spice and nutty oak on the palate, following into structured rounded tannins and an elegant dry finish.

4 Stars - Recommended Pinot Noir tasting, WineNZ Magazine Judges comments: Simon loved the nice bright, dark ruby colour. It was restrained, with mushroom. It was sound with good fruit, quite elegant, balanced with good acids and grip. Mineral and graphite came through for Ant, with pure dark fruits, but an attacking palate – there was tannin and pencil lead. Rod considered this well-balanced wine as smokey, with cherry, an intense fruit core and fine chalky tannins.
