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."


4 Stars & 17.5+/20 Raymond Chan, May 2018 (2017 Vintage)
"Light ruby-red colour with some depth and purple hues on the edge. The nose is rounded and gently full with good depth of fragrant red cherry and berry fruit along with subtle notes of fresh herbs, red florals, spices and a little nutty oak. This has a good array of aromatics. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant with finely concentrated and taut flavours of red cherry and berry fruit entwined with fresh herbs and an amalgam of red florals and spicy oak. The fruit shows well on the front palate and is enlivened by crisp acidity with light, supple tannin extraction providing support and forming a round, soft core and line. The flavours recede a little as the wine carries to a light, nuanced finish of cherries, herbs and spices. This is an elegant, up-front, fragrant and pretty Pinot Noir with red berry fruits, florals, herbs and spices on a supple, refreshing palate. Serve with salmon and tuna, poultry and Asian fare over the next 4 years. Clones 115, 667, 777 and Abel, 68% of the fruit from ‘Wharekauhau’, the remainder from ‘East Base’, ‘Clouston’, and ‘Townsend’ sites, vines on average 18 y.o., indigenous yeast fermented with minimal whole clusters to 13.1% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 27% new oak."
