Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"The upfront aromas and flavours suggest raspberry, pomegranate, black cherry, purple plum, chocolate and spice. These overlie savoury hints of barbecued meats, grilled mushrooms and black olive tapenade. It is richly textured and mouth filling with powerful but velvety tannins that flow evenly through the palate, helping to draw out the lingering aftertaste. While ready to drink on release it can be expected to cellar well and evolve gracefully for many years."
5 Stars & 19.0/20 Raymond Chan, December 2016 (2013 Vintage)
"Dark, deep, ruby-red colour, lighter edged. This has a well-proportioned and concentrated nose with deep aroma of ripe, dark-red berry fruit with a core of savoury dark herbs, unfolding full waves of ethereal aromatics of red floral perfumes, herbs, spices and nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, this has a rich, lively, vibrant and complex-detailed palate with flavours of dark-red berry fruits and subtle layers of savoury dark herbs, along with an array of dark-red florals, spice notes and nutty oak. The mouthfeel is sweet, lush and lively, balanced by fine-grained tannin extraction and excellent, underlying acid vitality. The rich flavours are mouthfilling and carry to a long, lingering finish. This is a rich, vibrant and mouthfilling, complex-detailed Pinot Noir with dark-red fruits, florals, savoury herb, earth and spice flavour on a fine-grained, well-structured palate. Serve with coq au vin, casseroles and game meat over the next 6-7+ years. Multiple clones, some up to 30 y.o. and ungrafted, indigenous yeast fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 18 months in 30% new French oak barriques. "
4 1/2 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 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 (about 40 per cent new). The 2013 vintage is a mouthfilling red with a core of ripe, cherryish, plummy flavours. Concentrated, savoury and concentrated, it has a finely textured, rich finish."
