Opihi Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2006 Vintage) says
Grown in South Canterbury, the 2006 vintage is clearly the best yet. Matured in French oak barriques (10 per cent new), it has ripe, sweet-fruit characters, very good depth of fresh, vibrant, cherryish, plummy flavours, and a well-rounded finish.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
Grown in South Canterbury, the 2002 vintage was low-cropped (2. 4 tonnes/hectare), picked at 25 brix and matured for 13 months in French oak casks. Yet the wine is disappointing. Medium ruby, with some colour development showing, it has strongly leafy aromas in a vegetal, stalky style, full-bodied but rustic.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
Grown in South Canterbury, the 2001 vintage was matured for 10 months in French oak casks. It's a middleweight style, light/medium ruby, with fresh raspberry and strawberry flavours seasoned with toasty oak. Firm and ripe, with some complexity, it's worth short-term cellaring.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
An enjoyable light style, the 1999 vintage was grown in South Canterbury, matured for nine months in French oak casks and bottled with minimal filtering. The colour is light; the flavours are berryish, fresh and crisp. It lacks real weight and richness, but offers well balanced, easy drinking.
