Shingle Peak Marlborough Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2003 Vintage) says
The Marlborough region of New Zealand's south island is well-known for its white sauvignon blanc, but is also establishing a reputation for good-value pinots like this dark, succulent wine, with good, concentrated cherry fruit and a smattering of pine needle and oak complexity. Imported by Beringer Blass.

Michael Cooper (2003 Vintage) says
The 2003 vintage from Matua Valley was matured for 10 months in French oak casks (20 per cent new). Strawberry and spice aromas lead into a middleweight wine, fresh, lively and supple, with a gentle seasoning of toasty oak and plenty of drink-young charm.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
The very harmonious 2001 vintage from Mama Valley was matured for eight months in new and older oak casks. Fresh, with cherry, plum and spice flavours and a touch of complexity, it's a smooth wine with plenty of character and drink-young charm.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
The 1999 vintage from Mama Valley is a ruby-hued, moderately concentrated wine with strawberryish, plummy flavours, some complexity and a smooth finish. It's an easy-drinking style, already enjoyable.
