Vinen har en indtagende bouquet af søde kirsebær og rose. Vinen har et blødt og sødt smagsindtryk, og den bærer i høj grad præg af det den søde saft fra bær.
The Real Review
A bold, spicy style of pinot that has abundant espresso, red and dark-cherry aromas. The palate is laced with mocha flavors and has a fresh, juicy and fleshy feel. Oak is a bit dominant for now. Try after 2023.
‘Elegant, fragrant, almost ethereal pinot noir with violet, cherry and red fruit flavours, plus a seasoning of spices and nutty oak. A supple and appealing wine with restrained complexity. Approachable now but with potential.’
Pinot Noirs in Marlborough are very pale, and while this has a lighter hue, it’s comparatively dark for the challenging vintage. This is a smoky, savory and supple style. Light- to mid-weight, it has a low level of fine tannins that coat the mouth, speaking of the clay-loess soils of the Southern Valleys rather than the alluvial Wairau Valley floor. Cinnamon and cherry fruit provide the fragrance on the finish. Fades a little quickly.
