Description

"A lovely mellow pinot, the nicely lifted bouquet shows ripe cherry, cranberry, floral, spice and almond characters. The palate is juicy and smooth with an attractive fruity mouthfeel, finishing pleasingly dry. At its best: now to 2021" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, May 2019

A round and soft Pinot Noir with flavours of fresh, ripe raspberries, plum and a hint of dried thyme. The palate is concentrated and focused with juicy fruit intensity and finishes with a nice oak lift. Silky tannins complement a long toasty finish and excellent mouthfeel. Perfect for drinking now and will continue to develop well for 4-5 years from vintage date.

Fruit was selected from a number of specifically chosen low cropping vineyards from the Southern Valleys region of Marlborough. A proportion of it went to oak where it underwent malolactic fermentation before being blended ready for bottling.

Food Pairing: An appealing and easy-drinking Pinot suitable for any occasion. A great food match with garlic and herb roasted pork tenderloin.

Ok but not a standout. Whatever's happened to the Mt. Olympus PN?
