Kaituna Valley The Kaituna Vineyard Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
This consistently striking Canterbury red flows from a close-planted, low-yielding vineyard tin Banks Peninsula, first planted in the late 1970s, and is matured for over a year in French oak casks (60 to 70 per cent new). The 2003 is dark, opulent and densely flavoured. In the winery's words, it's a 'bold and dramatic' style, with hugely concentrated berry, plum and spice characters and hints of liquorice. It's a very ripe, richly alcoholic wine (14. 5 per cent), but there's no denying its majestic body and richness.

This consistently superb Canterbury red flows from a close-planted, low-yielding vineyard on Banks Peninsula, first planted in the late 1970s, and is matured for over a year in French oak casks (60 to 70 per cent new). The 2001 vintage is densely coloured, tannic and chock full of very ripe, plummy, spicy flavour. The 2002 reveals impressive depth of colour and a highly fragrant bouquet of cherries, raspberries and spice. Very youthful, fresh and vibrant, it is weighty and concentrated, with a lingering finish, but needs time; open 2005+.
