Winery notes (2012 Vintage)
"The journey of each Single Vineyard wine starts in a Marlborough vineyard selected for its unique terroir and climate. They are then nurtured with meticulous hands-on viticulture to ensure fruit produces highly concentrated flavour. Our winemaking expertise then allows these wines to speak for themselves, their purity becoming a showcase of the land.

This Pinot Noir offers bright, aromatic fruit aromas of blueberry and plum melding alongside violet, cinnamon and nutmeg, with aniseed influence. Its palate is jam-packed with red fruit and savoury character all overlaid with a subtle texture and fine grain tannin. This ensures a well integrated, focused and poised wine with lovely length.

The journey for this wine begins in the Waihopai Vineyard in the Waihopai Valley in Marlborough. The vineyard has 20 year old vines, free draining river gravels with mixed silt loam over a clay base. The vineyard is nurtured with meticulous hands-on viticulture to ensure fruit each vintage produces highly concentrated flavour."


5 Stars & 95/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2012 Vintage)
"This is sumptuous and gloriously complex, exhibiting dark cherry, leather, truffle, dried herb and cedar aromas on the nose, followed by a powerful palate that is expansive and velvety. The wine offers gorgeous sweet fruit intensity, perfectly framed by polished tannins. At its best: now to 2020."


91/100 & Cellar Selection, Wine Enthusiast (2012 Vintage)
"The 2012 vintage was a cool one in Marlborough and this wine does show hints of tomato-like herbs. But it also has ripe, supple tannins, crisp, bright fruit flavours of pomegranate and pie cherry, with a long, silky finish. While approachable now, it should drink well through at least 2022."
