95 Points - Mike Bennie, Wine Front
A standout from Marlborough from an excellent site. Churton often fly outside of the blue chip banner, but are firmly in my top ten list of producers in New Zealand. Here’s a good reason why, again, to visit the producer or explore the wines. Hello!
Beautiful, fragrant perfume, red cherries, faint musk, gentle undergrowth savouriness, a touch of orange/orange peel. Palate is silky yet shows a fine sheath of tannin keeping things shapely and long. Mouthwatering, fine finish. This is a class act. Stellar pinot noir of structure, seriousness and fine texture with drinkability in tow.
