"This is a very attractive and gently complex pinot that sits in a red-cherry and red-plum zone, laced with spicy, gently herbal and floral elements, too. The palate has a very composed, fresh red-cherry centre with spice and light peppery nuances. Plenty of bright acidity lifts the finish. So fresh. Drink or hold." 95 points, Nick Stock, JamesSuckling.com.
"All cherry and pip, dried herb perfume and chamomile, plus a modest amount of gently smoky oak. It’s fleshy and juicy, again bright cherry flavour, some blood orange and peel lending a subtle amaro tang, soft acidity, supple emery tannin, and a spicy finish of fine length. Excellent expression of Otago, and a fine drink it is too." 94 points, Gary Walsh, The Wine Front.
