5 Stars & 96/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2016 (2013 Vintage)
"This iconic label delivers again. A magnificently composed pinot offering immensely attractive fruit flavours of dark cherry and plum with seductive truffle and spice undertones. The palate is powerful and expansive while remaining poised and classically structured, with elegant infusion of cedary oak and polished tannins. It is seamless, complex and gratifying. At its best: now to 2026."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"The 2013 vintage is an elegant, ruby-hued, still fairly youthful red. Tightly structured and savoury, it has strong, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, woven with fresh acidity, and very good complexity. Best drinking mid-2017+."
5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, October 2016 (2013 Vintage)
"Even ruby-red colour, with slight purple hues, a little lighter on the rim. This has an elegant and refined, ethereal bouquet unfolding aromas of dark-red berry fruit harmoniously layered with savoury dark herbs, lifted red florals and nutty, cedary oak forming a tight core. An array of fruit and floral fragrances emerge with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is refined and elegantly presented with a tightly bound heart, revealing flavours of dark-red berry fruits, savoury herbs and aromatic florals, along with notes of spice, nutty oak. The mouthfeel features fine-grained, flowery tannin extraction and integrated, soft acidity, the wine with a smooth, velvety flow, leading to a refined, tightly bound, bright aromatic finish of spices, florals and herbs. This is an elegant and refined Pinot Noir with ethereal red berry fruit and floral flavours on a tight, fine-grained and velvety palate. Serve with poultry and pork dishes over the next 6+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the company’s oldest vines on the Martinborough Terrace, clones, 51% Abel, 31% clone 5, 17% 10/5 and 1% Dijon, indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 24 days average on skins and 12 months in 31% new French oak."
94/100 Gary Walsh, The Wine Front, February 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"Rose perfume, juicy and tart cherries, spice, quality cedar oak, subtle and nicely tucked in. Medium bodied, silky and balanced, dried herb and black olive, firm and long finish. Classic Martinborough."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com, March 2017 (2013 Vintage)
"​This is a monumental Pinot Noir with wonderful mouthfeel and flow. Its dark in colour. The bouquet has waves of floral notes, forest floor, shrewsbury biscuit jam, tar, earth and game. The taste is concentrated and mouthfilling with a momentary peppery zing quickly enveloped by plump fruit and pillowy tannins. Typical Martinborough fruit of cherries, bittersweet red berries and touches of guava jelly with integrated smoky oak and gamey savoury notes. An outstanding and ethereal pinot that reveals more and more with every sip."
