5 Stars & 18.5+/20 Raymond Chan, March 2015 (2012 Vintage)
"Dark, even ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, youthful in appearance. The bouquet is softly full and blossoming in ethereal volume, showing a core of concentrated ripe, dark red berry fruits along with unfolding layers of spices, dark herbs, red florals and savoury nutty oak. The aromatics are detailed and harmoniously interwoven. Medium-full bodied, rich and luscious flavours of savoury dark red berry fruits are melded with dried herbs, whole cluster stalky complexities, and spicy oak. The fruit extract lends a fulsome grainy-textured structure and depth that supports and balances the fruit sweetness. The mouthfeel has plenty of presence and is enlivened by fresh, underlying lacy acidity, carrying the wine to a long, concentrated and textured finish with lush fruit notes. This is a rich, lush and concentrated, well-structured Pinot Noir with an array of complex flavours. Match with lamb, beef and game meat dishes over the next 6-8+ years. Multi-clone blend from vines up to nearly 30 y.o., with a portion "ungrafted, indigenous yeast fermented with many whole berries and 10% whole clusters to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 30% new French oak barriques."
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2012 Vintage)
"This is one of North Canterbury's greatest Pinot Noirs, typically very rich in body and flavour. Many of the vines are over 25 years old and the wine is matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (40 per cent new in 2012). The youthful, finely textured 2012 vintage is from the latest harvest ever. Full-coloured, it is supple, with substantial body and rich, savoury, complex flavours, plummy, nutty and slightly herbal. Best drinking 2016+."
