The quintessence of Central Otago Pinot Noir – powerful and seductive. Hand-reared on the North-facing slopes of Bendigo, one of the warmer sub-regions in Central Otago, the semi-continental climate and free-draining silt and gravel soils produce vivid and concentrated flavours. This is a wine with broad shoulders yet soft hands that have laid out a fruit feast. You will be greeted with black cherry, red plum and vanilla bean on the nose. Ripe boysenberry and cream flavours adorn a rich and rounded mid-palate that finishes with subtle notes of cocoa and cloves. The oak is restrained, and the tannins assert their presence but are soft and inviting. A complex fruit bomb with a serious demeanour and silky, svelte structure. A wine that truly screams more! 4 stars, Raymond Chan | 5 stars, Wine Orbit | 5 stars, Michael Cooper | 92 points, The Real Review | 90 Points, Cameron Douglas.
