Region: Central Otago
Grapes: Pinot Noir
First Glance: Bramble Berries, Savoury, Complex, Detailed
Acclaim: 95pts 

The Wine:
Precise and perfumed with lovely aromatics of cherry, violets, and spice layered with hints of savoury bramble and a mineral element of wet riverstone. There is a wonderful finesse, layers of interest, and finely held textural tannins extending through the long palate. A wine with vibrant focus, intensity and drive. Cellaring up to 12 years.

The Review:
Mike Bennie, The Wine Front - 95pts
"It’s tightly wound and cinched with fine, silty tannins. Perfume is a little mute, but that’s ok, dark cherry, a bit of flinty minerality, new leather, kirsch and dark chocolate apparent. Flavours similar but strongly minerally, briny acidity a feature, orangey acidity and a cool breeze of bergamot piquancy-bitterness in the mix. Succulent as all get out too, kinda refreshing all up. A beauty."
