Ataahua Waipara Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Fleshy, generous red from 18 year-old vines, matured in seasoned French oak, Ruby hued, with mouthfilling body, strong ripe plum/spice flavours, with a hint of licorice, and fine-grained tannins. Savoury and complex.

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
The charming 2009 vintage is a single-vineyard red, matured for a year in seasoned French oak barrels. Delicious young, it is ruby-hued, mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with sweet-fruit delights and strong cherry, plum and spice flavours, gently seasoned with oak. A finely textured wine, showing good complexity, it's a drink-now or cellaring proposition.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
The single-vineyard 2008 vintage was hand-picked at 24 brix and matured for a year in seasoned French oak barrels. Floral, fruity and supple, it's a mid-weight style with vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, and a touch of savoury complexity.
