What an impressive wine for its price. This is 'second label' Pinot that takes a big step into 'first label' territory with its flavour profile and complexity. It drinks beautifully with its dense and juicy dark fruits that have an intriguing floral edge while chocolaty tannins fill the palate. It's nicely weighted with balanced acidity and excellent varietal character.

Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Made with the same handcrafted discipline as Martinborough Vineyard, Te Tera Pinot Noir 2020 is an expressive, vivid and eloquent interpretation of one of New Zealand’s most venerable wine regions.

Vivid dark cherries, strawberry notes and red plum characters jostle with a hint of spice to demand attention on the nose. On the first sip, your palate is greeted with soft juicy red fruit flavours and spicy notes in the background. The moreish tannins and a velvety texture make for a memorable finish."

94/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review, October 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"Bright, supple pinot noir with dark cherry, floral, dark-fleshed plum, wood-smoke and a smattering of fresh herb flavours. A high-energy red with a backbone of lively acidity that helps drive a lingering finish."

92/100 NZ Wine Writer, September 2021 (2020 Vintage)
"A distinctive, modern, 'fruit-bomb' on the nose with lifted, perfumed aromas of rose petals, black damson plum, confected cherry, and charry, cocoa powder oak characters with a wild, herbal edge. Soft, fleshy, and juicy on the palate with generous fruit, rounded, sappy tannins. This will have broad commercial appeal. What's not to like?"

Reviews for the 2019 vintage below…

5 Stars, 96/100 & Top Rated NZ Pinot Noir, Gourmet Traveller Wine Magazine, May 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Shows sappy, fragrant redcurrant and raspberry aromas nicely married with oak. A supple palate, with sweet fruits and a suggestion of whole bunch use, finishing with good length and fine stemmy tannins. Caillard [MW] noted, "Intense red cherry, strawberry aromas with herb garden, chinotto and vanilla notes. Classical wine with fresh ripe cranberry fruits, underlying roasted chestnut and vanilla oak notes and fresh integrated mineral acidity. A beautiful example of pinot noir."

5 Stars, Top 10 & Best Buy, Cuisine Pinot Noir Tasting, April 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"Lovely bright-red cherry, earthy and herbal notes deliver a precise aromatic impact on an inviting and intriguing nose which pulls you into the wine. The palate is laden with earthy complexity and flavours of chocolate, spice and an incredible lusciousness that keeps this wine alive and helps to provide balance and tension between the tannins that parade through the palate."

5 Stars & 94/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, June 2020 (2019 Vintage)
"Youthfully charming and perfumed, the wine shows dark cherry, raspberry, violet, thyme and toasted almond characters on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that's flowing and lingering. It's elegant and stylish with plenty of juicy fruit flavours as well as seductive savoury nuances. At its best: now to 2026.", April 2021 (2019 Vintage)
"It was the seductively silky textures in this magical thing from Martinborough. Dave loved its camphor notes and spice layers. Add hints of rhubarb, raspberry tea and earthy, forest floor complexity, you’ve got what Corey describes as “a beautifully focused, finely-tuned, beautifully balanced wine."

The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
