4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage)
"Grown on north-facing slopes at Auntsfield, on the south side of the Wairau Valley, the 2012 vintage is deep and youthful in colour, mouthfilling and generous, with concentrated cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, oak complexity, and good tannin support. An elegant, savoury red, it's already delicious, but should be at its best 2016+."
4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, October 2014 (2012 Vintage)
"Full, dark, deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is bold and voluminous with vibrant, primary, well-ripened dark raspberry and plum fruit aromas entwined with raspberry liqueur, black berry fruits, lifted floral and confectionary whole berry fermentation notes and a suggestion of jam. Medium-full bodied, softly packed and dense fruit flavours of plums and dark raspberries fill the mouth, revealing earth and jam interest. The fruit is supported by serious tannin extraction providing a grainy texture. Soft acidity moderates the grip and mouthfeel, and the wine carries through to a dry-textured, well-structured finish with savoury plum jam and earthy notes. This is a fulsome, well-structured Pinot Noir with ripe dark raspberry fruit and soft density. Match with roasted red meats and casseroles over the next 6-8 years. Estate fruit hand-picked, destemmed and fermented partially with indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in French oak barriques."
Cuisine Pinot Noir Tasting 2014 ( 2012 Vintage)
"This offers the perfect illustration of what clay slopes on the southern side of the Wairau Valley can provide: dark, juicy, concentrated pinot fruit and a fine, silky structure. A dried herb note and good acid tension add lift and interest.”
