Food Pairing: Pairing beautifully alongside game birds such as quail or duck.

Awarded 94/100 Points: James Suckling,, Oct 2018

Awarded Silver Medal: New Zealand Organic Wine Awards, May 2019

"Fragrantly aromatic pinot noir with ripe cherry, plum, spice and subtle oak flavours. An elegant wine with appealing purity and suppleness. There is also a suggestion of floral character, perhaps red rose? Delicious now but no rush" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review, Mar 2019

"Very good colour and the wine is all-round bright, fresh, clean and lovely. The tannins are softer here than in the past, although it's till highly structured. Tannins are less blocky and the wine less extracted. Delicious Pinot; superb quality" Huon Hooke, Real Review, Jan 2019

"Certified biodynamic, the refined, youthful 2017 vintage was estate-grown at Bendigo, hand-picked and matured in French oak barriques (28% new). Deeply coloured, it is invitingly perfumed, with strong, ripe flavours, vibrant and supple, excellent complexity, and a long finely poised finish. Already drinking well, it should be at its best from 2021 onwards" Michael Cooper, May 2019

"Fresh, supple and rounded with sweet red cherry and raspberry fruit. Has nice polish and texture but also good structure and acidity. Ripe, expressive, elegant and grown up" Jamie Goode, Feb 2019

"This is a very good Pinot, deliverng a mix of powerful fruit and a focused structure. Violets and ripe red cherries sit amid gently stony, flinty nuances, leading to a palate that has a succulent, lithe and juicy core of vibrant cherries and chalky tannins. Great Pinot" James Suckling,, Oct 2018

Divine ruby red in colourwith intense cherry and berry aromas. Rich on the palate with dark cherry, subtle floral and herbaceous notes. Excellent depth, fine tannins and a long vibrant finish.

Alc - 14%

1 x Rapaura Springs Reserve Marlborough Pinot Noir 2018

Dark cherry and blackcurrant fruits are complimented with complexing mushroom and black olive tapenade flavours. The palate is rich with combined dark and red berry fruits, including blueberries and cassis. The tannins are finely poised and silky and finishes with notes of dried herbs and cedar oak.

Fruit for the 2018 Reserve Pinot Noir comes from a selection of premium vineyard sites throughout Marlborough. Upon arrival the fruit is cold soaked for 3 5 days to extract the desired flavours, tannins and colour. Fermentation followed, in a selection of small open top tanks, using a selection of yeasts. The wine was plunged two to three times a day to extract colour and tannins from the skins. Select parcels were then allowed to macerate, further extracting colour and flavours after fermentation, for a further two to five days. After gently pressing the liquid off skins, the wine underwent malolactic fermentation to soften the palate and was then aged with a combination of French and Hungarian Oak.

Alc- 13.5%

Dark cherry with a crimson hue. Dark aromatics with notes of ripe cherry, sage, dried bark and thyme emerging. Wonderful integration of ripe red fruits and velvety tannins across the palate. It has great density yet carries a very elegant feel as it flows towards the savoury dry finish.

1 x Greenhough Nelson Pinot Noir 2016

Awarded 4.5 stars: North & South Magazine, May 2017

"Sharply priced, this delicious wine was handpicked and matured for a year in French oak barrels (32 % new). Full, bright ruby, with fragrant, ripe bouquet, it is sweet fruited with generous plum, cherry, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony.” North & South Magazine, May 2017

Attractively aromatic. Summer berry-­‐fruits, citrusy, floral notes and a lightly spiced herbal fragrance. Earthy, mushroom notes evolve ast he wine opens up. The palate is brightly red-­‐fruited with a light spicy savouriness and supple structure of well-­‐bound tannins. Exotic guava and quince with secondary preserve-­‐like notes. A refreshing plum skin tang and chalky, mineral edge balances riper flavours.

Alc - 13.5%

1 x Framingham Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017

Aromatics are reminiscent of smoked mreat, with light florals, red cherry and plum. Flavours of red Summer fruit compote and plum with savoury meat and graphite-like notes. Fine, well integrated tanin structure.

Framingham Pinot Noir tends to be a more "femine" style displaying grace and charm with strongly varietal flavours and some good structure to add interest.

Alc: 13.5%

Beautiful mix of top New Zealand wineries and their Pinot Noir's. It's nice to try a variety from all around New Zealand. Each wine is unique in their own way - bit hard to comment when they are all different.
