Product Description

A sultry, stony and savory expression, offering wild black fruit, beef stock, wet stones, woody spices and a flicker of smoldering, flinty rock. Entrancingly particular now, but there’s much more to come in time. The palate cuts a strong, powerful and contained swathe of mouthwateringly taut tannins. Explosive and directional power on the palate with lustrous, dark fruit that holds deep into the chasm-like finish.
From a single-vineyard parcel on a north- facing site that is home to the oldest vines on the property. Drink in 2023.

GW and I blind tasted some 800-plus New Zealand wines in June of this year, in New Zealand, and this was one of the top wines from that tasting. Testimony to hard work, tenacity, fastidious biodynamic/organic farming, thoughtful additive-free winemaking, and, well, there you go.
Sublime pinot noir of seamless flow yet unique personality, hemmed with a swathe of lacy tannins, brought to life on perky, amaro-like acidity, deep in just-ripe fruit flavour, incredibly long and satisfying with an almost nourishing feel. Reel that back and you’ve got loads of perfume, fine flavour, structure for days. Texture is so outstanding, reserve of fruit compelling. Sensational. 97 points Mike Bennie, The Wine Front
