Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2010 Vintage) says
A nice, clean pinot here, showing meaty, oak-derived complexity that delivers mocha and sweet baking spices across ripe, dark cherry fruit aromas; really vibrant. The palate has a smooth tannin sheen that carries ripe, bright cherry fruit flavour and an upbeat, violetine finish.

Michael Cooper (2001 Vintage) says
This Martinborough red is consistently attractive and the 2001 vintage is a top drink-young style. Fresh, lifted raspberry and spice aromas lead into a deeply coloured, vibrant and strongly flavoured wine. Matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (30 per cent new), it displays rich, ripe cherry, raspberry and spice characters, with well-integrated oak and gentle tannins.

Michael Cooper (1999 Vintage) says
This Martinborough red is consistently attractive. The splendidly rich, velvety 1998 vintage set a new standard for the label and the 1999 is impressive too.

Michael Cooper (1997 Vintage) says
This Martinborough red is consistently attractive. The 1997 vintage is an intensely varietal wine of high quality. Full and youthful in colour, with raspberryish fruit aromas, it's a weighty, smooth wine with ripe, concentrated, lively fruit characters and balanced French oak. Tasted from the barrel, the 1998 is weighty and supple, with generous depth of warm, ripe plum/spice flavour in a forward style, looking good for 2000.

A consistently attractive Martinborough Pinot Noir. The perfumed 1994 vintage is a medium-weight style full of ripe, spicy, plummy, persistent flavour, with some complexity and a long, silky finish. Lovely now, the French oak-aged '95 is a generous, full-bodied and supple wine with sweet, spicy fruit flavours, now developing some bottle-aged complexity.
