5 stars – Raymond Chan

“Aromas and flavours of a sophisticated and alluring Pinot Noir with plum, mushroom, light and darker cherry, plenty of strawberry notes and fine baking spice wood layers. Silky and elegant on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose, finer tannins, medium+ acidity, fabulous balance and length. Well made. Best from now and through 2026.” – Cameron Douglas MS

“Wonderfully complex and inviting, the wine shows dried cherry, dark mushroom, game, thyme and toasted nut characters on the nose, leading to a beautifully rounded palate that’s silky and flowing. It’s elegant, yet flavoursome and intense with layers of gorgeous savoury flavours. At its best: now to 2023.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

“This is refined and intense, with complexing secondary aromas. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion with intense and harmoniously integrated flavours of savoury and spicy red cherry and berry fruit along with subtle notes of dried herbs, undergrowth, earth and cedar. The fruit is rich, sweet and vibrant, and underlined by fine-grained, powdery tannin extraction, with soft, balanced acidity. The flavours carry through to a slender, but sustained finish.” – Raymond Chan

Tasting Note: A favourable vintage in the Waipara Valley reveals a wine of serious substance and complexity that will age gracefully for years. Aromatic on the nose, with big florals (violet, rose petal) underpinned by earthy notes. The palate shows breadth, but it’s still remarkably light on its feet, tiptoeing the tightrope between the equally seductive forces of power and prettiness. The tannin structure is still firm, but the finish is ample and lengthy.
