Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Notes from the Winemaker:
The Pinot Noir grapes for this wine come from Central Otago. Here, the soil type is free-draining sandy loam over schist alluvium gravels known as Molyneux soils. The clones planted in these soils are B777, B667, B115, Clone 5 (Pommard) and Abel. The vineyard is entirely cane pruned to two canes, with the wire being approximately half full. The Dijon clones give the wine nice floral notes, while Abel provides structure to the wine.


Ratings & Reviews

93 Points & #46 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:
"This displays an impressive presence, smooth and succulent, with vibrant cherry, raspberry and apricot notes and touches of white pepper, anise seed and toasted cumin. The texture is smooth, with firm tannins that add an appealing traction on the finish. Drink now through 2033. 4,500 cases made, 3,500 cases imported." — MW

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"While this organically farmed Pinot isn't as fruit forward as previous vintages, it makes up for it with an abundance of fresh herbs: thyme, rosemary and fennel seeds, with some leafy secondary characters and red-berry fruit in the mix too. Mouthwatering acidity and crunchy fruit are balanced by sandy tannins. Drink this light-bodied bottle a little chilled, with a summer meal seasoned with the same freshly plucked herbs as the nose suggests. Christina Pickard" - (9/1/2019)

Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2018 Pinot Noir offers a solid bouquet of sweet red fruits, spice, and underbrush to go with a soft, forward, balanced, and enjoyable style on the palate. It's well made, has no hard edges, and delivers a good, clean finish." - Jeb Dunnuck (11/5/2019)
