Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"​River Run is our Central Otago regional pinot noir made from grapes grown in our vineyards in the Cromwell basin with a dash of Gibbston fruit from the home vineyard. The Cromwell vineyards give the wine its fine tannin structure and succulent fruit, while the old vines in the home vineyard give nice savoury tones and mid palate density. The wine is made to display typical Central Otago bright, fresh sweet fruit, good texture and mineral length.

The wine has an intense bouquet of red fruits, spice, violets and savoury earthy notes. Good fruit weight and fresh red berry flavours give a nice mid palate focus. The fine tannins and mineral acid lead to a long finish."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2015 Vintage)
"This 'fruit-driven' style slides down very easily. The highly attractive 2015 vintage was hand-harvested in the Cromwell Basin (Lowburn, Parkburn) and at Gibbston, and barrel-aged (15 per cent new). Ruby-hued, it is floral and sweet-fruited, with mouthfilling body and ripe, delicate cherry, plum and spice flavours, slightly nutty, finely poised and lively. A subtle, satisfying red, it's drinking well now, but should also age well."
91/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, July 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"It is immediately appealing on the nose showing spiced cherry, game, mushroom and floral characters. The palate delivers sweet berry flavours together with fine texture and rounded mouthfeel, finishing long and silky. The wine offers lovely harmony and balance with attractive spicy/savoury notes. At its best: now to 2019."
