Taste & Other Notes

From Central Otago this wine is one very classy act. Not only has it already been awarded five stars and placed in the Cuisine Top 10 it also has five gold medals, the latest at The Drinks Business Global Pinot Noir Masters in the UK.

The flavours are layered similarly to teh aromas, with beautiful juicy cherry fruit characters, more of the delicately smoked oak and a dusting of spiced dark chocolate, very fine tannins and some nice acidity in the finish add up to a delicious wine. This is an outstanding example of finely crafted Pinot Noir and deserves every accolade it has had to date.
