Brightwater Vineyards Nelson Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2011 Vintage) says
Fine vallue. Full-coloured, fragrant and generous with deep, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours. Fruit-packed, with a subtle seasoning of French oak and ripe, supple tannins. (Unfined and unfiltered.)
March/April 2013
Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Deeply coloured, the 2010 vintage was matured for 10 months in French oak barrels (15 per cent new). Already enjoyable, it is fresh and vibrantly fruity, with ripe cherry and plum flavours, slightly nutty and smooth, and very good depth.

WINESTATE (2009 Vintage) says
Floral, with intensely varietal, cherry/plum flavours, savoury notes from ageing in French oak, and good tannin support.

Michael Cooper (2008 Vintage) says
Ruby-hued, the 2008 vintage was matured for 10 months in French oak barrels. Its a flavoursome, supple wine, slightly leafy, with very good depth and some nutty, savoury complexity. A drink-young style, it's best opened now to 2010.
