Vibrant ruby red with some solid, darker tones. The first sniff is greeted with plenty of Pinot personality and a heap of classic Martinborough Character! I love it when a Pinot smells of fruit, earth, mineral and savoury elements altogether, something we tend to achieve more often than not around these parts! Excellent silky, soft flow to the mouthfeel with plenty of fruity weight and texture, like the smell, the taste has fruit and spice and earth in equal measure. Nice finish, tasting savoury and earthy just like a good Martinborough Pinot should. This wine is delicious now but will no doubt gain greater level of delicious with a couple of years bottle age. Will drink nicely for many years to come.
