Winery notes (2014 Vintage)
"The Crater Rim Waipara Pinot Noir fruit was sourced from our estate vineyard in the Waipara Valley. The vines were low cropped and sustainably managed to provide fruit of great flavour depth, structure and integrity.

The fruit was fermented in small open top vats, using natural yeasts followed by 11 months maturation on lees in new and seasoned French oak barriques.After barrel maturation, the wine was bottled without fining or filtration.

Aromas of red cherry, earth and spice are balanced with a generous round mouth feel. The finish on the palate shows hints of spice with a fine ripe tannin structure."


5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2017 (2014 Vintage)
"A beautifully composed pinot, the lifted bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, smoked meat, clove and nutmeg characters with subtle truffle complexity. The palate is concentrated and beautifully weighted, and offers terrific fruit power and silky texture, wonderfully structured by fine, polished tannins. At its best: now to 2020."


4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper (2014 Vintage)
"The 2014 vintage is mouthfilling and savoury, with concentrated plum, cherry and spice flavours, showing excellent ripeness and complexity."
