This Martinborough Pinot Noir has been turning on Pinot lovers here at Vino Fino for a number of years now.

Not a second label,99 Rows is made in the same way as the Estate label, but is a blend of different Pinot Noir clones sourced from different blocks in their vineyard on Te Muna Road and another on the Martinborough Terraces.
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, March 2016 (2013 Vintage)
"This consistently excellent pinot delivers again. Fragrant aromas of dark cherry, plum, game and savoury mushroom lead to a succulent palate that is rounded and silky. The wine is generous and flavoursome, while remaining balanced and structured. At its best: now to 2017."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"Estate-grown at Te Muna, the 2013 vintage was matured for 10 months in French oak casks (5 per cent new). Enjoyable now, it is mouthfilling and savoury, with very satisfying depth of ripe plum, cherry and spice flavours, hints of herbs and nuts, good complexity, and a well-rounded finish."
4 Stars & 18.0-/20 Raymond Chan, April 2016 (2013 Vintage)
"Moderately dark, ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim with slight purple hues. The nose is fresh with softly concentrated and deep aromas of bright, dark raspberry fruit entwined with subtle notes of liquorice, dark herbs and complexing minerally, reductive detail. This has firmness at the core, unfolding nuances of earth and spice. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses rich and juicy flavours of dark raspberries along with nuances of plums, liquorice and dark herbs. The mouthfeel is bright and lively with fine-grained tannin extraction and fresh acidity in support, and the wine flows along a tight line with good energy and drive. Attractive aromatic plum and violet floral detail emerges on the sweet, but fine-textured finish. This is a bright, sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with flavours of dark raspberries and a fresh, fine-textured mouthfeel. Match with poultry, pork, lamb and beef over the next 5 years. A barrel selection blend. Clones 5, 6, 114, 115, 667, 777 and Abel, hand-picked, destemmed and fermented to 13.23% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 5% new French oak barrels."
