Peregrine Central Otago Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2009 Vintage) says
This typically outstanding red is also a good buy. Grown principally in the Cromwell Basin, but also at Gibbston, it is matured for about 10 months in Burgundy oak barrels (25 to 40 pet cent new). The goal is 'power with elegance', showing 'ripe-fruit characters, without overt oak, and a silky texture'. The 2009 is mouthfilling and highly scented, with rich cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing good, savoury complexity, and lovely harmony.

This typically outstanding red is also a good buy. The 2007 vintage was grown in the Cromwell Basin (80 per cent) and at Gibbston (20 per cent). The vines' yields are kept low (averaging 5.5 tonnes of grapes/hectare) and the wine is matured for about 10 months in Burgundy oak barrels (35 to 40 per cent new). The 2007 is delicious now. Richly coloured and concentrated, with cherry, plum and spice flavours, oak complexity and supple tannins, it is fresh, sweet-fruited and long. The 2008 is very finely scented, with moderately concentrated, sweet-fruit flavours, good complexity and ripe, supple tannins. Drink now or cellar.
