5 Stars & 19.0-/20 Raymond Chan, December 2017 (2016 Vintage)
"Even, light ruby-red colour, a little paler on the edge, with slight purple tints. The nose is very elegant and fine in expression, with ethereal aromas of dark-red berry fruit at the core, with soft, dark herb notes and bright red floral fragrances, unfolding a little spice and nutty oak. This has finesse and grows in intensity with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a richly sweet and lusciously vibrant fruit flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruit along with hints of dark herbs, spices and nutty oak, along with lifted dark-red florals. The mouthfeel is very well-balanced with very fine-grained flowery tannin extraction, and integrated lacy acidity, The palate is deceptively elegant in proportion, but grows in depth, texture and linearity, carrying with good energy along a velvety line, leading to a long, spicy finish. This is an elegantly concentrated, dark-red cherry and berry fruited Pinot Noir with beautifully vibrancy and vitality, with fine, flowing tannins and a fresh mouthfeel. Match with poultry, pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 6+ years. 80% ‘Wharekauhau’ vineyard fruit, clones 115, 667, 777 and Abel, and 14% ‘East Base’ vineyard fruit, clones 667 and 777, and 6% ‘Clouston’ vineyard Abel clone fruit, vines up to 18 y.o., fermented with 3% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 14 months in 30% new French oak."
