Kaituna Valley The Awatere Vineyard Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
This Marlborough wine is typically powerful, robust and crammed with flavour. The 2002 is deeply coloured, with generous, upfront fruit characters and concentrated plum, coffee, herb and spice flavours showing excellent complexity and length. The 2003 vintage was ultra low-cropped (2. 4 tonnes/hectare), harvested at 23. 8 to 25 brix, and matured for 14 months in French oak barriques (half new). Still unfolding, it's a muscular (14 per cent alcohol), richly coloured wine with warm, plummy, spicy flavours, smooth and generous, good texture and mouthfeel.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
This show-stopping red is crammed with fruit. The 2001 matured for 14 months in French oak barriques (50 per cent new) and bottled unfiltered, is very generous and warm, with the cherryish, gamey bouquet of classic Pinot Noir. It has a commanding mouthfeel (14.5 per cent alcohol), notable complexity in its youth, gentle acidity and a delicious, velvety texture. Deeply coloured and richly scented, with a clear herbal influence, the 2002 vintage is vibrant and harmonious, with lovely weight and depth of cherry, herb and spice flavours and silky tannins

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
Crammed with rich, ripe fruit and impressively complex, the 2000 vintage is a single-vineyard Marlborough red, matured for 14 months in French oak barriques (50 per cent new). Still youthful, it's a notably intense wine, plummy, cherryish and spicy, with beautifully integrated oak and supple tannins in a very elegant style.
