97 Points - Bob Campbell

Delicious pinot noir, with a sumptuous texture and floral, plum, dark cherry and Oriental spice flavours. Supple, elegant wine with impressive underlying power - the flavours linger long after the wine has been swallowed (or spat in my case). An accessible wine in a very appealing style.

Region

Central Otago is a beautiful and powerful place situated on the South Island of New Zealand with land dominated by rivers and mountains and shaped by glaciers. Part of the Otago region, the climate here goes from one extreme to the other and is the coldest yet driest part of the country which allows for a deep concentration of fruit flavours in the grapes. In this region vines are planted in desert conditions, however the plethora of rivers running through make it ideal for vineyard irrigation. Riesling, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir all grow incredibly well in this area.
