This is a Pinot Noir with a true sense of terroir, this minimal intervention approach allows the fruit to shine and the aromatics to be persistent. Notes of red and black cherries, old fashioned roses, savoury, spice and hints of game. The palate has an attack with bright red and black fruit flavours. Fine, structured tannins adds texture complimented by mineral acidity on the finish.
Grapes: Pinot Noir
Region: Waipara Valley
Location: New Zealand
93/100 / 5 Stars, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
It is wonderfully fruited and delightfully fragrant, displaying dark cherry, earthy mushroom, floral, almond and smoky bacon notes on the nose, followed by a juicy palate that is rounded and fleshy. It is beautifully fruited and flavoursome, while remaining elegant and poised.

"If The Crater Rim hasn’t made it onto your radar yet, then this is the perfect place to start: a wow factor, Waipara Valley Pinot Noir at an incredibly accessible price. The Waipara Valley is the heart and soul of the North Canterbury wine region and Pinot Noir is the great red of this vastly underrated area, thanks to winemakers such as Hayden Good at The Crater Rim, who crafted this beautifully balanced, food-friendly red. It is medium-bodied, dry and fresh with a gorgeous combination of bright, sweet fruit and a savoury finish. It’s drinking extremely nicely now and can age for up to five years."
