Reviews

 
 
Silky and finely textured, this is a refined Pinot Noir with soft tannins and a very satisfying mouthfeel, testament to the purity of fruit and minimal handling, bringing the drinker closer to the vineyard itself. An excellent release - perhaps their finest yet. Enjoy between now and 2022.

Estate-grown at Martinborough, barrel-matured, and bottled without fining or filtering, the 2014 vintage is already drinking well, but also well worth cellaring. Full ruby, it is mouth-filling, sweet-fruited, savoury and generous, with fine-grained tannins and strong, very ripe plum, cherry, spice and nut flavours, showing good complexity.

How on earth winemaker Wendy Potts manages to inject layers of creme caramel, roast nectarine, cinnamon and juicy, grilled grapefruit into this wine, I’ll never know. She’ll tell you it’s all in the fruit, whereas I think there’s also some serious talent going on in the winery. Buttered crumpet and almond notes on the palate.
