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.

5 Stars, 94/100, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Complex and engaging, the gorgeously expressed bouquet shows sweet strawberry, spiced cherry, game, almond and mushroom characters. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent weight and roundness, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and fine tannins. Flavoursome and lingering with lovely savoury nuances. At its best: now to 2021."
4 Stars, Michael Cooper "Estate-grown in North Canterbury, the youthful 2016 vintage was matured for over a year in French oak barriques (partly new). Full, bright ruby, it has an attractive, fragrant, savoury bouquet. Mouthfilling, it has fresh, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing good complexity, and a very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2021+."
