Kim Crawford has been pumping out classic Marlborough wines since the mid 90s. But this Pinot Noir is a special bottling, where the Kim Crawford team have ventured to Central Otago in a bid for great Pinot.
The result is a masculine and 'Central' Pinot with guts. A proper rich and full-flavoured red in a bold style, with firm tannins and real depth.
We put this wine in a big lineup of Pinot from all over the world and it slayed 'em, with that chunky fruit just so impressive that we bought all we could get our hands on (which wasn't much - they weren't joking about the 'small parcels' bit).
The end result is one very impressive, exclusive Central Otago Pinot that is all yours for just $19.99/bottle in six packs!
Appearance: Intensly dark ruby red.
On the nose: Intensely lifted notes of blackberries and plums. Dried thyme and sweet, spicy oak aromas give this wine an intriguing nose and balances the fruit aromas nicely.
On the palate: Rich and full flavors of plums, dark forest berries and spice. Ripe and luscious, the fruit flavors are well framed by silky tannins, giving the wine structure and great length.
