Sam Kim has just awarded it 4 stars - in fact it was just 1 mark off 4.5 stars. He describes it as "A charming Pinot with soothing flavours, the bouquet shows fragrant aromas of red/black cherry and floral with hints of savoury mushroom and spice notes. It's ripe and silky on the palate with lovely fruit intensity and a lingering supple finish. It's effortless drinking. At its best: now to 2013."
Yvonne Lorkin has also given it 4 stars - "An outstanding wine for the price! With aromas of red cherries and sweet black tea it follows with intensity, spiciness and refreshing, fruity charm in the mouth. The label is one of the ugliest I’ve seen in a long time, but please look past that because this pinot is a cracker."
2008 in Central Otago was a wonderfully ripe and bountiful vintage with its endless summer. This wine is a combination of rich and dark fruit flavours coupled with savoury fruit tannins from extended ripening time on the vine.
