Large format oak - 30% new Damy Alliers French oak for 11 months on lees.
Tasted frequently touched rarely.
Aromas of stone fruit and melon with some spicy notes.
Pink grapefruit shines through with the bright acid drive.
A medium to full bodied pallet with a lovely texture.
A wine that assertively expresses the qualities of a fine vintage.
It's very expressive and polished, with supple, sweet strawberry fruit, juicy acidity and medium weight tannins all pulling in the same direction.
A hint of sweet spice on the finish only adds to the allure.
A soft floral nose with hints of thyme, dried strawberry and charcuterie all give way to a palate full of refreshing red berry fruits and spice with a long savoury finish.
Aromatic plum and raspberries with freshness and balance, the wine has a round central core of red fruit that gives way to a complex mid-palate full of cassis, dark cherry, spice and vanilla.
A very clean, medium bodied wine that is both interesting and delicous with good acidity giving it good length.
Warm & rich with layers of flavour - hints of blackberry and dried plums, even notes of coffee.
An absolute cracker for this price!
A beautifully structured Central Otago pinot noir.
On the palate it is a full bodied pinot noir, with flavours of black cherries, berry fruits and anise.
The fruit weight is complemented by fine, silky tannins, providing length and persistence to the palate.
